Marco Polo's Silk Road Game

Marco Polo's Silk Road Game

Teach about Marco Polo, historical Europe to Asia trade routes, ancient civilizations, and the dangers and difficulties of medieval travel with a simulation game. Players make choices about what to trade for along historic trade routes, take a "chance" in the dangerous desert, and must plan ahead for food. Perfect for both homeschooling settings and for classrooms, the game provides children with an entertaining way of learning about Marco Polo, ancient civilizations and historical trade routes, and the difficulties and dangers travelers would have faced along the way. Younger children will probably take 30 minutes to get to China and back, but they will be asking to play again! Older students may want to negotiate the best prices in cities or take multiple journeys to China in one game, so their game will last longer. If you decide to implement the hands-on alternatives (fabric scraps to represent silk and raisins or another small food for the required "food" allowance, for example) your kids will beg to play some more! It is fun for young children and older children alike. This game introduces the following concepts: • Marco Polo traveled through mountains and desert to get to China. (In our game, we return via the same route; Marco Polo returned a different way). • A paiza (golden passport given to Marco Polo’s father from the emperor of China) provided the travelers a degree of protection from Mongol warriors and gave the travelers hospitality in caravansaries along the way. • Silk and porcelain from China was worth a lot in Venice. • Other places on the trade route provided Europe with tin, rugs, jade, and porcelain. • Between Italy and China are many mountains and deserts. • Preparation is required before entering a desert, and travelling through the desert is taking a chance. Included in the zip file are the following *Game pieces to print (if you do not want to find small objects, you can print these images on cardstock!) * Full playing instructions (5 pages) * Map game board from Venice to Xi'an, China (4 pages to print and tape together) * A template to design a paiza * “Take a chance” cards (for when you "take a chance" by landing in the desert)

Byzantine Empire: Roman Catholicism and Eastern Orthodoxy worksheet

Byzantine Empire: Roman Catholicism and Eastern Orthodoxy worksheet

Byzantine Empire: Roman Catholicism and Eastern Orthodoxy Background: Originally, Christianity had one church. Because of political conflicts and differences in belief, the western and eastern parts of the Christian Church split apart in 1054. The western church became the Roman Catholic Church, and the eastern church became the Eastern Orthodox Church. Both churches believe in the gospel of Jesus and in the Bible as interpreted by their church. They also believe that God uses sacraments to convey his love to humans. Sacraments are visible signs of something sacred; for instance, the water used in baptism is a sign of God’s power to cleanse people of sin. The Venn diagram below shows other similarities and differences. ROMAN CATHOLIC AND EASTERN ORTHODOX DATA • U.S. state with highest percentage of Roman Catholics: Rhode Island, 51 percent. 2001 American Religious Identification Survey by Graduate Center of City University of New York • U.S. states with highest percentage of Eastern Orthodox: New Hampshire and New Jersey, 0.90 percent each. 1990 National Survey of Religious Identification • Vatican City is an independent state located in Rome, Italy. The Roman Catholic Church claims more than a billion members worldwide. Concise Columbia Encyclopedia, third edition; www.adherents.com • The largest of the Eastern Orthodox churches is the Russian Orthodox Church. It claims 90 million members worldwide. www.adherents.com • In 2003, the world region with the largest population of Roman Catholics: Latin America, 473,000,000 • In 2003, the world region with the largest population of Eastern Orthodox members: Europe, 158,450,000 – - Encyclopaedia Britannica Book of the Year 2004 The 11th Century: Comparing Two Churches Roman Catholic Both Eastern Orthodox Services are conducted in Latin. The pope has authority over all other bishops. The pope claims authority over all kings and emperors. Priests may not marry. Divorce is not permitted. They base their faith on the gospel of Jesus and the Bible. They use sacraments such as baptism. Their religious leaders are priests and bishops. They seek to convert people. Services are conducted in Greek or local languages. The patriarch and other bishops head the Church as a group. The emperor claims authority over the patriarch and other bishops of the empire.

Medieval Siege Warfare hands-on  History Trebuchet Activity

Medieval Siege Warfare hands-on History Trebuchet Activity

For Year 8 History to tie in with medieval studies- students develop their understanding of siege warfare of the medieval castle and also design and test their own trebuchet. This is a fun and engaging kin-aesthetic learning activity that works on and develops skills in working with others, comprehension/literacy, design and self-reflection and critical thinking. It also engages multiple intelligences and higher order thinking/cognition. Students doing this will not even realise they are learning as they will be busy having fun learning, thinking, collaborating, planning and creating. This is an awesome lesson for students who might normally be poorly self-disciplined as they get really absorbed in the task (just set a few ground rules about safety and courtesy). This is also a great introductory activity to link in with a thematic or specialist study in the Black Death (given the theory that the Black Death was initially spread via trebuchets catapulting diseased bodies in the vicinity of Asia). It is also a good initial activity to link in with specialist study of the Crusades given that siege warfare was a part of this. Make sure you also show students lots of images of trebuchets and other medieval siege weapons (plenty online). As a nice adjunct, you might (with appropriate parental permission as needed) also consider showing the Siege of Jerusalem AD 1187 scene from the movie Kingdom of Heaven (about 15 minutes).
