MEKONG RIVER STUDY PART 1 - LIFE ON AND AROUND THE CAI BE PORT IN VIETNAM

MEKONG RIVER STUDY PART 1 - LIFE ON AND AROUND THE CAI BE PORT IN VIETNAM

This unit has a focus on life around the port of Cai Be - Vietnam. This settlement depends on the water within the Mekong system. The water level varies during the year - being at its height when the Mekong has greater flow levels. The residents around the water's edge and those living in boats on the water adapt to the water conditions. Sample studies of a small scale family business are included because they represent the dozens of enterprises within the settlement. But Cai Be is also a tourist attraction. It is a destination for tourist companies bringing visitors from Ho Chi Minh City. Others reach the destination by taking side excursions off Mekong River Cruises. Take your students on a boat ride through the port. Find out how one small company uses the resources from the Mekong floodplain. Venture into the side channel and see the larger processing factories. The attachments provide an opportunity to distribute hard copies. This is part 1 of a series of studies on the Mekong River - a major river of South East Asia

THE ORIGIN -EXPANSION-ACHIEVEMENTS AND COLLAPSE OF THE KHMER EMPIRE OF CAMBODIA

THE ORIGIN -EXPANSION-ACHIEVEMENTS AND COLLAPSE OF THE KHMER EMPIRE OF CAMBODIA

Here is a resource with potentially a whole range of uses. It can stand alone as an investigation into "lost cities in the forest". It fits into medieval history and histories of Empires. It fits in with significant urban developments of the Middle Ages. It can be used in studies of World Heritage Sites - Angkor Wat and Angkor Thom (Bayon Temple). It touches themes of Hindu and Buddhist religions. In the investigation phase of the Angkor region it indicates the role of satellite imagery, scientific investigations of dendrochronology to link with climate change. Take your students into the forests north of Siem Reap Cambodia and they can be like the first foreign missionaries who ventured in an area on the strength of local stories of a lost civilisation. Discover the ruined temple of Ta Prohm (see the picture) and then follow the discoveries of the large urban complexes of Angkor Wat and Angkor Thom. Carefully selected photographs and maps will allow your students to see the scope and skill of the builders of the temples, canals, moats and bridges of the Angkor area. Enter Angkor Thom across the causeway and through the South Gate as the Chinese Zhou Daguan did centuries ago. Who was Zhou Daguan? Well he is part of the discovery. His worksheet and the question sheet are provided as attachments. This unit will enhance studies of Asian environment, history and culture.
