Exploring our world during the Middle Ages, one great civilization at a time.

Unit 6: Empires of Asia

During the Middle Ages, many great empires in Asia existed side by side. Students will explore the Golden Age of China from the Sui through Ming Dynasties, and develop a deeper understanding of Buddhism's appeal and spread throughout Asia. Next, students will explore the Mongol civilization, who would establish the largest land empire in history. Finally, we end our unit by investigating the unique military culture of Japan, governed largely by the samurai code of Bushido during this Medieval time.
