In this lesson, one of a multi-part unit from ARTSEDGE, students gain an understanding of the dynamics of trade in China along the Silk Road, and the role of trade in urbanization throughout the Han, Tang, and Song dynasties. Their study culminates in student-produced shadow puppet performances. Note: This lesson plan refers to many images, video, and resources available online.
