Activity Overview


The story of communism developing in China is complicated. It involved domestic struggle and international conflict. Creating a chronology of these events will help students understand why communism was initially so appealing to many Chinese citizens.

Students will create a storyboard timeline of the development of communism in China in the 20th century. The timeline should include 8-10 cells and must include:

  • The role of Sun Yixian, Mao Ze Dong, and Jiang Jieshi
  • The role that both WWI and WWII played in creating circumstances for political change in China
  • The tensions between the Nationalists and the Communists
  • The Long March
  • The Great Leap Forward
  • The Cultural Revolution
  • The harm and benefits of Mao’s implementation of communism

For an alternative to the timeline layout, have students create a timeline poster to incorporate into a presentation or gallery walk. You can add more than one template to this assignment to give students lots of options and adjust the instructions accordingly.
