    We "visit" the fascinating civilization of China in February.  Our focus includes the following: 

    • Analysis of China's geography and climate and how that has affected its development
    • Inspection of Chinese culture - including the family structure, how Confucius plays into family life and the greater culture, and the practice of foot binding 
    • Evaluating the rule of China's first emperor, the controversial Shi Huangdi
    • Analyzing the contributions of the Shang, Zhou, Qin, and Han dynasties
    • Exploring the role of Confucius in the formation of government and the civil service
    • Discovering China's many inventions - including fireworks/gunpowder, silk, porcelain, paper, the compass, the civil service system, and the perfection of the crossbow 
    • Exploring the impact of China's Silk Road - and how trade influenced the development of China and civilizations with whom they traded
