Please note that with regard to lesson
plans dealing with anthropology, archaeology, indigenous people, ancient
civilizations, history, etc, there may be some cross-over and blurring of lines
between the topics. For example, a lesson plan dealing with
archaeology is automatically dealing with an anthropological
subject. A lesson plan dealing with indigenous people is also
automatically dealing with anthropology and any of them may, or may not,
be dealing with history or ancient civilizations. While every
attempt will be made to keep the topic lines as 'clean' as possible, be
aware this may not always be possible.
Appropriate grade or age levels are
included with the lesson plans.
The number of lesson plans available online
for this topic is enormous. This site can not and does not index all
lesson resources relating to things Chinese. That would be impossible, as sites appear and disappear with astonishing rapidity. The following provides some idea of
what is available and will hopefully be a good starting point.
lesson plan sites have a subscription fee or otherwise sell
their lesson plans (that is an additional feature of some of
the sites found here) all lesson plans and collections
of lesson plans listed here are free.
