Read letters from terracotta warriors and labourers (diverse viewpoints), do art, and make inferences, as you "meet" the first emperor of China, and learn about military/social ranks, technology, medicine, beliefs, laws and ancient culture!

Homework Offered
The students should complete their art if they do not finish it during the class time and should post a picture on our class page. Then, they should add some comments in response to the other learners' work. Additionally, they should complete the writing prompts to reflect on the soldiers lives, personalities, and feelings.
0 - 1 hours per week outside of class
Assessments Offered
I am able to give feedback and a report on each learner's progress, if requested.
Grades Offered
Each learner will need art supplies like pencils, crayons, markers, scissors, glue, tape, etc. It will also be easier if the illustrations can be printed out prior to each class, although students may colour/edit them using a computer program or redraw them on paper.

I will supply the readings and illustrations from my book (a $20 value).
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
This class will include an age-appropriate discussion of war and death. Most of the illustrations are of soldiers' faces, but there are a few illustrations of fighting, including two with a wounded or dying soldier (not gory).
