Subject: Chinese Inventions yesterday, Today, and in the Future
The goal of this lesson plan is to meet 7th grade CA History standards concerning China's contributions to the world. In short, this lesson has students investigate Ancient Chinese inventions and create a poster in which they show what this invention was in Ancient China, what it looks like today, and what it will look like in the future. They have the opportunity to become inventors and tap into the creative process.

Below are all the components. The Chinese Inventions PDF, which lists 20 inventions and has text next to them was taken from:

Hope you enjoy!

Subject: Really good resource about Chinese Inventions
Thanks you so much for your resources posted here. I would definitely quote some from your posting. For example, the 20 inventions. It will be really useful for my high school students to know that besides the top 4 ancient inventions, Chinese also invented the tooth brush, the kites, the paper money and many others as well.
