This BrainPop website talks specifically about the Silk Road in Asia and how goods got from Europe to China and vice versa. The BrainPop website has a video that can be played for the class before or after a lesson about the Silk road and trading between Europe and other places. BrainPop also provides a quiz and other activities, such as a challenge, game, and an FYI section to help students understand trading better. This is a great resource to teach students since it gives them a description about the Silk Road in a simplified way that they can understand easily. The activities after the video also go a step further to make sure students understand what is being taught.
