Five sections of activities involve designing clan banners (based on ancient Chinese conceptions of the universe), making an illustrated Great Wall timeline, planning advertising billboards for locations along the Silk Road, navigating the maze-like Forbidden City to complete tasks related to ancient Chinese culture and philosophy, and competing in tournaments of Chinese Chess, Chinese Dominoes, and Go. A celebratory banquet is the culminating activity. The teacher’s guide supplies explicit directions, lesson plans, activities, assessments, and handout masters, while student guides offer historical background for the simulation. The simulation runs for 25 class periods, though sections may stand alone or be omitted.
