This slideshow helps elementary students quickly learn about famous landmarks, food, art, and the culture of China. This slideshow can be used at the start of any unit on China. You can also print the slideshow and make a book of it for student research. You will also find 4 questions at the bottom of the slideshow that can be used to review the information students have learned.

This resource was rich and engaging for my students. My school hosted an International/Cultural night and in preparation for it, my students learned everything they could about China. They were like sponges, taking in every detail.
