The Cultural History of China: a chronology

The Cultural History of China: a chronology

This is a chronology in summary form of twenty five of the key events in the cultural history of China. There follows a four page chronology of Chinese history with dates and key events from the last 7000 years. At the end of the document there is a suggested activity where students can use the information to create a timeline of Chinese cultural history. I have my students follow the directions as listed at the end of the chronology. I think this resource is of use for a teacher's own research or to use as a student activity. The work in selecting and compiling this chronology is my own. My main research resource for this information was The Cambridge Illustrated History of China by Patricia Buckley. The download includes a pdf of the chronology itself and a suggested activity, which could be modified.
