When we think of globalization, we often think it is a modern phenomenon. But what about globalization in ancient times? Beginning with a peek into the lives of present-day high school students in China, participants will explore how western culture exists alongside Chinese norms. Next, take a historical journey to the Silk Road to examine the exchange of ideas that took place thousands of years ago and their impact on societies throughout Asia and the world.

Recommended Materials: Paper and pencils, crayons, or markers.
