6th graders learned many new things about Ancient China and Emperor Qin. This young man became the leader at 13 years old! He was able to rule and conquer many different lands. Emperor Qin created many lasting legacies in China. He unified the country with the same language, same currency, standard measures and created an enormous terracotta army that would enter the after life with him.
Students did some research on where, when and why the terracotta army was created and found. They also each chose a terracotta warrior to build with clay. It was a long and challenging process at times, but each student was able to create a unique warrior.
