Geography KS2: A child-led tour of Tianchang City in the Anhui Province of China
An introduction to Tianchang, a city in eastern China in the province of Anhui.
Nine-year-old Jing Jing recently moved to the area to be with her mother, who is a sales manager in a toy factory.
The area is one of the centres for manufacturing.
Women are busy sewing, stuffing and finishing the soft toys ready for export all over the world.
Jing Jing is a big fan of the soft toys and she also loves shopping and reading children's books.
Together with her mother and a friend, they take a trip to an enormous toy outlet.
Children could consider the similarities and differences between UK factories and the toy factory in Tianchang, a city in eastern China in the province of Anhui.
The children could present this information in a Venn diagram or as part of a report.
The children could write an information report about manufacturing in China and how this has significantly increased in recent years.
This report or diary could be accompanied by a glossary explaining the key vocabulary. The children could complete further research about the traditions and customs found within China.
This clip will be relevant for teaching Geography at Key Stage 2 in England and Wales and 2nd level in Scotland.
