Ancient China: The Art of Invention
In order to teach her 2nd-graders about Ancient Chinese inventions, teacher, Michelle Rogers, teamed up with mixed media artist, Laura Schultz, on a project that had students actually create the innovations they studied. In this unit, students created a scroll book and clay amulet representative of Ancient China with poetry, short stories, and symbols modeled after Chinese authors studied. Their culminating project was a tea ceremony where students presented their scrolls to peers and other members of the school community.
