Who Owns the Sea

Description: China’s territorial conflicts with neighboring countries not only include land conflicts with India. As China seeks to control potential underwater fossil fuel resources, their conflicts also extend into the East China Sea and the South China Sea and include high-tech “island creation” by China’s government.  Students will analyze a series of graphics in order to understand and make predictions about these conflicts.
