You could use it in the first lesson of the unit, to help give students an overview of this fascinating unit on the Tang Dynasty.
Or, it would be a great homework activity: students could be tasked with reading the ‘story’ independently, and then answering the comprehension tasks at the end.
Help introduce students to main Emperor’s of the Tang Dynasty. Your students will also read about the spread of Buddhism from India to China, the extent of trade that journeyed to China across The Silk Road.
This short activity also tells of the problems the Dynasty faced which helped lead to its downfall in 907.
