APWH World Traveler’s Postcard assignment 600 –1450

  1. Choose ONLY one of these travelers: Marco Polo, Ibn Battuta, Zheng He, a Mongol soldier, or either a merchant or Buddhist monk traveling on the Silk Road.

    • Learn about Marco Polo, Ibn Battuta, & Zheng He by visiting the Saudi Aramco website (http://www.saudiaramcoworld.com/issue/200504/) There is a brief five page essay on each of them at this web site that you need to read.

    • Additionally, for Zheng He google National Geographic Society Zheng he and get: http://www7.nationalgeographic.com/ngm/0507/feature2/index.html

    • Or look at images and read the primary sources and a map of Ibn Battuta’s journeys at: http://www.saudiaramcoworld.com/issue/200004/the.longest.hajj.the.journeys.of.ibn.battuta-editor.s.note.htm

    • http://www.isidore-of-seville.com/ibn-battuta/4.html

    • For Marco Polo, you may wish to check out the Silk Road Foundation website including the information at http://www.silk-road.com/artl/marcopolo.shtml but there is much more at this web site.

    • Learn about the Chinese monk Xuanzang at these 2 sites. One is a biography http://www.travelchinaguide.com/silk-road/history/traveler-xuanzang.htm & the second provides a cartoon video of his journeys http://kid.chinese.cn/en/article/2009-09/01/content_51087.htm

    • For the Mongol soldier you may use http://afe.easia.columbia.edu/mongols/.

    • Last of all for the Silk Road merchant or monk, any one of these sites will do. 1) http://www.saudiaramcoworld.com/issue/198804/ 2) http://gallery.sjsu.edu/silkroad/ 3) http://www.centralasia-southcaucasus.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=84

  1. After you have completed your research, you should write 5 postcards of no less than 150-250 words describing what they saw and did using information from the article. Your entries can cover several different days and should reflect of the PIRATES analysis you have learned. Mention specific cities and experiences—smells, sounds, etc. Be sure your point of view is clear and you use specific examples. Use the first person!!!

  2. Your entries must be in postcard (i.e. describe journeys on/or different times) form like the example below. Therefore be creative! Feel free to add a few pictures of what you see!

  3. The total report/postcards should be about 750-1250 words.

  4. Include a HAND-DRAWN map of your explorer or traveler’s route.

The following are some items to consider in assisting your research and writing.

When putting your journal together --- it should contain these points of interest:

  • People you meet

  • How did you get to your destination (mode of transportation)

  • Wind & ocean current

  • Technology encountered

  • Foods

  • Major geographical features

  • Gender roles

  • Art & architecture

  • Languages, religions & customs

  • Items you brought to trade

  • Items you purchased

  • Types of government

*Your postcards should look authentic – that means everything should be done by hand {writing, drawings, charts, maps, pictures, etc} DO YOUR BEST EVEN THOUGH YOU MAY NOT BE A STELLAR ARTIST. Remember there were no computers back then!   


Sample Postcard-Mosque of Kairouan, Tunisia - AP World History

(This is an example of what should be written on the back)

Sample - Post Card from Great Mosque of Kairouan, A.D. 836-75 (Abbasid period) located in Kairouan, Tunisia

Dear Mom and Dad,

Today I arrived in Kairouan, Tunisia which is near Souse. On my post card there is a picture of the Great Mosque here. I stayed here with some of the scholars and religious leaders. We talked about Muslim law and I learned a lot. Everyone speaks Arabic and at least one other language.

The weather is very hot again, over 100 degrees! I hope it will rain soon, but I doubt it. I look out onto the flat land and can't see any clouds at all.

We came here by camel caravan, but I rode the donkey you bought for me. On the way our caravan was watched by raiders. It was a good thing that we were so large, so they didn't try anything.

Now I am about 800 miles from home. I'm really homesick, too. I miss you very much.

I'll write to you at my next stop.

Your loving son, Ibn Battuta

Sept. 13, 1325 (725 A.H.)
