It forms the foundation of s study on the role of this leader from early obscurity to prominent leader. The history and the museum depicted in the front page clearly reveal the respect modern day Mongolian people pay to this leader in their history. Visit the museum and gaze at the photos and the map. You will then understand why the heading 'larger than life" is appropriate. Attachment pages are provided so that hard copies can be given to your students.

Asssessment task: The Mongol Expansion

Asssessment task: The Mongol Expansion

There are 3 parts to this task: 1. Create a model of a Mongol weapon or armour or piece of clothing, 2. Write a brief information report on the item that you have selected, 3. Include an annotated bibliography of at least 4 sources of information for your task. This has been a very popular task over many years and is guaranteed to maintain student engagement. I suggest that you advise school staff of the day that the task is due so that they are aware that models of knives, swords, shields etc. will be coming directly to you at the start of the day. This will avoid misunderstandings. Some of these models have been truly outstanding replicas! This assessment task meets the requirements of the NSW History K-10 Syllabus for the Australian Curriculum and BOSTES assessment guidelines. Stage 4 Depth Study 6: The Mongol Expansion This is a great task to promote History!
