Unit 2: Ancient China explores the geography of China and the development of ancient Chinese civilization; introduces the social, legal, and political impact of Qin Dynasty Emperor Shi Huangdi; examines the ancient philosophies of Confucianism and Daoism; and looks at developments in the Han Dynasty, including the opening of the Silk Road.Unit 3: Ancient Greece looks at the rise of Greek city-states and Athenian democracy under Pericles; compares two contrasting Greek city-states: democratic Athens and militaristic Sparta; and explores ideas about what makes a good society from three of the Western world's greatest philosophers--Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle.

Unit 4: Ancient Rome traces the history of Rome from its founding myths through the Roman Republic; examines the political and social institutions of the republic; explores the leadership of Augustus when Rome made its transition from republic to empire; and discusses religious toleration and persecution in the Roman Empire.
