SKU: H56IL401605

This Oracle Bones KS2 History lesson explores how the Shang Dynasty was the first civilisation in China to leave written evidence of its existence on oracle bones, as well as how they were the first people in China to develop a calendar.

The included slideshow for the teaching input starts by exploring what the oracle bones were, how they were used and what we can learn of the Shang Dynasty from them. Your class can then have a go at deciphering and writing Shang pictographs for themselves during their independent learning activities!

This lesson comes fully planned and ready to teach with a detailed lesson plan, a slideshow for the teaching input, differentiated activities and a range of printable resources.
