It started way back in 8000 B.C. First came the Neolithic, then came the Xia Dynasty.
It ended with the Shang Dynasty first and the Zhou Dynasty next which ended in 256 B.C.
Ancient China existed for about 850 years. The Timeline of ancient China had four parts to it.
If you were a boy, your father had permission if he wanted to put you in school and take you away from work in the fields. If there wasn't a school in your village, you might have to go live with your relatives or strangers in a bigger town. In the beginning of the Han Dynasty(206 B.C.-220 A.D.), many schools were free, paid by the emperor.
Ancient Chinese writing looked like this: This means God, which is
pronounced shànd dì. Boys
worked very hard in school because school helped them to prepare for the government tests. Whoever scored the highest mark could get a good job in the government. Only the test scores counted. Not how rich you were or your fighting skills.

Wonder of the World
The People of Ancient China
There Were Three Classes
The landscape had three parts to it,it had the mountains (Himalayas),a bit of deserts and plains and forests.
One of the wonders of the world is the Great Wall of China! The Great Wall of China is 21,196 km long! The reason why it was built is because Qin Shihuangdi wanted to protect his kingdom from danger.
The chinese zodiac signs are 12 animals each having their own years. When someone is born on one of the years they are that certain animal. For example our whole class is born on 2003 so we are all the ram/goat.
The chinese also had many other beliefs since the ancient times to today. One of them is Buddhism which is famous through Asia. Another is Zhuang Moism. And even another one is Tibetan Bön.
The people of ancient china were emperors, farmers, philosophers, poets,
The educated and intelligent formed the group called Shi. The talented skilled enough to produce their own product are in a group called Gong. The farmers and peasants are in a group called Nong.
China borders 2 dangerous deserts. The Gobi Desert, and the Taklamakan Desert. The Gobi Desert is dangerous and dry. There, water is very rare and an oasis is very rare also. The Taklamakan Desert, China's second desert, is the second largest desert in the world. It's nickname is The Sea Of Death. Sandstorms happen frequently, with no warning. The days are boiling hot and the nights are freezing cold. Also, the snakes are poisonous. Crossing The Taklamakan Desert is very dangerous and can be deadly. It is one of China's natural defenses.
In china people had many jobs, some of them were farming,mining,fishing,arts and craft, business, and finally trade.
In ancient china trading was very important because of its big population. Chinese people traded food,weapons,and items(like jewelry, fabric.etc)
Ancient China has also invented the
chopsticks! The chopsticks was a useful tool
which was used to eat noodles and other
chinese dishes. Another invention the chinese made was the traditional chinese knot. They
say that each knot sign means a sign of good
There is archaeological evidence of rice farming along the Yang-tse River as early as about 5000 BC. People cooked rice by boiling it in water, the way they do today. Or they made it into wine. Rice wine has been popular in China since prehistory.
Rice was the first grain that people farmed in China.
Rice doesn't grow in northern China, which is much drier and colder. People in northern China gathered wild millet and sorghum instead. Millet is a fast-growing cereal plant that grows wildly in colder and drier regions that have poor soil.
Sorghum is a widely cultivated cereal native to warm regions of the Old World. It is a major source of grain and of feed for livestock. Another food people associate with China is tea. Tea grows wild in China. By about 3000 BC (or it could be much earlier), people in China had begun to drink tea. Soon everybody drank tea.

Most kids in Ancient China never got a chance to go to school at all. They had to work in the fields planting rice or millet(grains), weeding the vegetables, feeding the chickens, or taking care of their little brothers and sisters.
The people thats not as wealthy lived in mudbrick houses. The richer lived in fancy houses with fancy designs. Their designs for houses was usually long and low.

Ancient China had a lot of farming space,they had 122,400 sq km. They also have 67,500 sq. km of fresh water lakes for fishing fish and other aquatic animals.
The ancient Chinese clothing consisted mostly of robes. While the women wore lengthy tunics that reached the ground, the men wore tunics that reached their knees. The sleeves of the garments were wide, and loose fitting, with sashes being added as ornamentation. Darker shades were preferred over light ones. Lighter coloured clothing was worn more commonly by the common people. The original ancient Chinese clothing was referred to as the Han Chinese clothing. The outfit was called the Hanfu. With the coming of various dynasties, the hanfu underwent a lot of modifications.
Primarily, there were three variations of ancient Chinese garments
PIEN-FU: A 2 piece ceremonial costume, consisting of a tunic top extending to the knees, and worn with ankle length skirt or trousers.
CH'ANG P'AO: This is a one-piece ankle length tunic dress.
SHENYI: A combination of the first two, a shenyi is a 2 piece top and trouser/skirt outfit that has been sewn together to make a one-piece garment.
The earliest dynasty recorded, the Shang Dynasty (c.1600 BC-1000 BC), developed the fundamentals of the Hanfu; it was made up of a knee-length tunic tied with a sash, with narrow cuffs called yi, a narrow, ankle-length skirt, called shang. This was accompanied by a bixi, which was a length of fabric that reached the knees. Since technology was limited, the only colours that could be used were primary colors- red, blue , yellow and green. It was a unisex outfit worn by men and women alike. The higher strata of society of course had more elaborate work and motifs on it in spite of the limited colors available.
