We covered a quick review of Egypt and then started on the Indus River Civilizations of Harappa. We did a reading and answered a question about the organized city of Mohenjo-Daro. We discussed the Indian caste system and how rigid it was. We started a cartoon drawing activity that reinforced lessons about India and China. We talked about Emperor Qin, the Great Wall of China, and the terra-cotta army he built for his tomb. We spent a lot of time talking about the impact of geography on India and China. China developed independently and unique because of the mountains, deserts, and ocean surrounding it. India is unique because they get monsoon rains that make it possible for them to farm and survive.
