Korean War Map Exercise guides students through the divisions that formed immediately after World War II, during the Cold War. Students first locate several geographical and political points on the Korean peninsula. Students then analyze six different maps of Korea during six different stages of the war. No other maps from a book or the internet are needed. This can be used in class or as homework as it’s a completely stand alone assignment. This is also perfect for substitute teacher plans.
Seoraksan National Park. This park is one of the most beautiful and iconic on the entire Korean Peninsula. Designated by Unesco as a Biosphere Protection site, it boasts oddly shaped rock formations, dense forests, abundant wildlife, hot springs and ancient Shilla-era temples. Seorak-san (Snowy Crags Mountain) is the third-highest mountain in South Korea, with its highest peak, Daecheong-bong, standing at 1708m. Set against this landscape are two stately temples, Sinheung-sa and Baekdam-sa.
Three young girls play on the steps of a building. At the turn of the 20th century, Christian missionaries opened girls' schools, granting Korean women access to modern education for the first time. When the Korean Peninsula split in 1945, the North applied communist principles of gender equality, placing a particular emphasis on the participation of women in economic production -- an approach that is still taken today.
