Lord Bau & Wu Zetian
|Jul 9 - Jul 12
morning / afternoon
Entrée into the ancient and complex culture of China will be through the Empress Wu Zetian, the only woman who ever ruled independently as emperor over 1000 years ago. This will allow students to look at the cultural norms for men and women, both in her time and in ours.
Three hundred years later, Lord Bau (Bao Zheng) was a judge whose decisions are likened to King Solomon of Biblical fame. Children will read mysteries based on his cases to see if they can figure them out as he did. Details of those cases will add to their understanding of the Chinese culture.
