PRC – What are these?

Friday July 13, 2012

PRC = Photo Recognition Challenge and/or People’s Republic of China

This series of questions /pictures and answers were created as a follow-up to my teacher study tour of China in July 1999.  The trip was organized by the Social Studies Education Consortium (SSEC) and was sponsored by The Freeman Foundation.  All photos were taken by me on this trip.

I would post the question and picture page outside my door to get students thinking about China when we were studying this fascinating country.  After most of my students had tried to answer the posted PRC, I would add the answer page.

The following pictures are numbered for convenience sake, they can be used in any order.  I have separated the answers by adding the “more” link.  On each answer page I have included a link to a pdf of each challenge  – which contains the pictures, questions and the answers.

I hope you find these interesting, but do keep in mind that they are from 1999, and may be somewhat outdated.
