Curriculum Areas/Learning Outcomes
Connection: Your child will participate in an exploration of the vast continent of Asia through biography, story and text.
Social Studies: Concept: Religious and cultural practices that emerged during this period have endured and continue to influence people.
Connection: Your child will learn about the multitude of religions that are practiced around the continent. They will focus on one religion through a research project.
Math: Concept: The constant ratio between the circumference and diameter of circles can be used to describe, measure, and compare spatial relationships.
Connection: Your child will work in their Grade 7 math workbook to practice and develop skills in this area.
This unit will offer a broad perspective on the landscape of the continent, the climate, animals, natural resources, renewable resources, cultures, religions, and rise of some of the great civilizations. Through a research project, based on the spreading of religion along the Silk Road, your child will choose one religion to gain a deeper understanding and appreciation for, and then share it with an audience through an oral presentation.
Due to the enormity of the continent, and the fact that Daily Wonder offers an exploration of India and the Middle East in Grade 5, and Russia as part of Europe in Grade 6, this unit will not focus on those regions. If your child did not receive the Grade 5 or 6 Daily Wonder curriculum, you may choose to incorporate more information on those areas into this unit.
