Timeline Activity

It is exciting that the Silk Road was in existence for hundreds if not thousands of years. It covered much of the planet both in time and distance. With a wealth of history available in so many civilizations, and then empires, and countries specific events and people are easy to find on the Silk Road.

Find one fact from any area along the Silk Road that interests you. It can be about a person an event or a building or a battle. Write about that chosen fact in your own words and what it means to you. Make the margins about 6 inches wide so it can be easily put on a big timeline roll.

Station 6

Genghis Kahn Activity

This is a video on the life, work and death of Genghis Kahn. In the days of Genghis Kahn there was much strife and fighting among the tribes in Mongolia. Even though they were fierce warriors they spent their time fighting each other instead of expanding the territory of Mongolia. Genghis Khan changed all of that and united all of the tribes.

You will be watching the 20 minutes section of this video that shows the young Genghis coming to the realization that to become a great empire they had to unite. You will see that there were some tribes that were looked down upon.
