The Shang Dynasty

This unit of work will teach us all about the Ancient Shang dynasty. The children will learn who the Ancient Shang people were,
where and when they lived, using maps and atlases to locate Shang cities. They will also learn about the role of the king, the religious
beliefs and rituals of the Shang people and how oracle bones were used in divination ceremonies. The children will also examine a range
of Shang artefacts and draw conclusions about what they can teach us. The unit ends with a close look at the remarkable discovery of
the first intact Shang tomb which belonged to the military general and high priestess Fu Hao.
