I will be honest and say this topic (one the kids voted for) filled us parents with dread - that said, we all managed to create some amazing activities.
We looked at the Mongolian Empire, lifestyle and how they made felt.
Studied the Terracotta Army and had a go at making our own.
Looked at the countries in Asia and drew their flags for the giant map.
Read all about moon lanterns and had a go at lantern making.
Explored Rangoli and drew our own.
Made edible maps of the rivers and mountains in Asia.
I was very impressed by one childs' take on Mt.Everest - the tallest mountain of marshmallows :)
