Transcript of China
China is one of the world's four ancient civilizations. It is located in Asia, and its geography and climate vary. China’s official name is actually the People’s Republic of China, and its official language is Standard Mandarin. Its population is 1.3 billion.
China's Historical Sites
In the Qin Dynasty the Great Wall was built completely by hand. The Great Wall extends for more than 1,500 miles, and most of it is 25 feet high and just as wide. The Great Wall can be seen from radars in low orbit, but not from the moon.
In 1974 workers digging a well found a life-size clay soldier poised for battle. Archeologists found not one, but thousands of clay soldiers. A further search revealed swords, arrow tips, and other weapons. There are even clay horses. The clay army is supposed to escort the first emperor of China into the afterlife.
China’s president is Xi Jinping, and its government is run by a single political party called the Communist Party of China.
China’s economy is the second largest economy today. It was the biggest back in the 1800s. China makes most of its money off of business mostly by exporting goods. They export some unique items such as jade figurines and jewelry.
China's Religion, Superstitions, and Holidays
China’s major religions are Buddhism, Taoism, Islam, Catholicism, and Christianity. The Chinese believe the number 13 is lucky along with the numbers 8, 18, and 168. Amaya said they skipped floor 4 in her apartment building because the number 4 is unlucky. Some holidays the Chinese celebrate are New Year's Day, Chinese New Year's Eve, Chinese New Year, Ching Ming Festival, Dragon Boat Festival, Mid Autumn Festival, and Chung Yeung Festival.
China’s history is very interesting. Its written history can be said to date back to the Shang Dynasty, over 3,000 years ago. China’s history consists of 13 dynasties. Listed in order they are: Xia, Shang, Chou, Qin, Han, Six, Sui, Tang, Five, Song, Yuan, Ming, and Qing. Many archaeologists and historians don’t accept Xia as China’s first dynasty because no evidence such as artifacts have been discovered to show that it existed.
