Asian and African Empires, 1500s-1800s
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-SA
Rating

This unit is intended to address the VA Standards of Learning for World History II Standards 6 and 7.  Students are required to explore the similarities and differences between the various Asian land empires and African societies of the 1500s-1800s, with a particular focus on geographic, political, cultural, and economic interactions with each other and the rest of the world. Through the unit, students practice information literacy skills as they research and become experts in one Asian or African empire, work with a group to develop a virtual museum exhibit on it, and explore the virtual museum exhibits created by the other groups to learn about all of the empires and synthesize the unit content.  The unit, which is separated into 6 modules,  was designed for use in a virtual learning environment with both synchronous and asynchronous components.  It could easily be converted to a fully face-to-face unit, but it would be challenging to convert it to a fully asynchronous online unit because of the group work activities involved.

I love this activity, and I think it is a great instructional resource for students to learn about atomic structure and counting atoms in compounds.  However, I would like to add a single modification.MODIFICATION:  Add the following question: How are atoms of one element different from the atoms of  a different element?   This resource is designed to accompany students notes, texts, and other instructional resources and provide a means to review what they have learned about atomic structure and counting atoms in compounds.

 Introduction:The atmosphere consists of many different layers that each have unique characteristics. Other things in day to day life also consist of layers that have unique characteristics, like beds, burritos, and sandwiches. Task: Draw a picture to compare the layers of Earth’s atmosphere to something else that has layers. For example, you could draw a cheeseburger and write “The lettuce on the cheeseburger is like the Mesosphere, because they are both the coldest layers.”
