In this grade 6 interdisciplinary language arts and social studies unit, students are required to assume the role of a team and describe their country's participation in trade along the Silk Road.

The team is asked to create a display showing artifacts, journal entries, and maps of people involved in Silk Road trade. Students are provided detailed instructions on how to complete the activity and a large list of resources, including Internet sites.
