The activity “Genghis Khan” was developed using the Learning Magic Text and Graphics Click to Read TGCR template. In this template, the child is presented with a graphic and a text box with one to three paragraphs of information regarding the subject, and that page is then followed by a page with a multiple choice question to ascertain the student’s comprehension of the previously read materials. The child has the ability to go back and re-read the section if desired. Also a child needing extra support can click on the text box and the text will be read aloud to him or her. Behind the scenes we are capturing all their responses and automatically generating a graded report through the IntelliPics Studio 3® portfolio management and reporting system.

In “Genghis Khan” we retell the story of one of the greatest leaders in history. Born as Temujin in 1167, he loses his father in one of the hundreds of Mongolian tribal battles, and yet emerges at age 25 to be the unifier of all of the Mongol tribes. He is given the title “Genghis Khan” or “Universal Lord”, and then leads the combined Mongol tribes in victory after victory against various enemies.

Temujin As A Young Man

Children will read and learn about his innovative approaches to building and organizing an army, his use of cavalry and various armor to protect his soldiers etc. They will also learn that although his army was vicious, Genghis Khan always set up a new government in the conquered cities, often using local people to run the cities. In many cases the new governments were much better for the citizens and brought stability to their lives.

They will also learn about Genghis Khan’s use of psychological warfare which led to minimal conflicts in many cases. In summary, they will learn about one of the largest empires that has ever existed on earth, and how it was orchestrated by a young Mongol boy who lost his father at the age of nine. Today Genghis Khan is remembered as a vicious and ruthless warrior but also as one of the greatest leaders and statesman that the world has ever known.
