The history of
China's Flag
On July 4, 1949
the government of China announced a notice for submissions to design the national flag. But there were requirements for the flag. A fun fact is the the government doesn't allow the provinces to have their own flag. But the Special Administrative Regions, like Hong Kong can have their own flag with the approval of the government. Plus the military have their own unique flag.
The Capital of
China is Beijing
By: Ethan Nguyen
China is located
It's the Great Wall of China, one of the main tourist attractions. It was built to protect China from invaders.
Here are a few famous
landmarks in China
It's the Forbidden City! This is another tourist attraction. It was built in the Ming dynasty for the emperor.
It's the Temple of Heaven, also known as the Altar of Heaven. It was built in the Ming dynasty as a venue for the emperors to offer sacrifices and pray for a good harvest.
Education in China
Ministry of Education
Education in China is run by the Ministry of Education which is a section of the government. Citizens are required by law to attend school for at least 9 years. Since the 1950's education has developed for the required first 9 years. Sadly the secondary schools like Vocational, Senior High Schools, University and Colleges haven't developed as much.
One of the improvements in the whole education process is the gender equality for all students. Also in 2003 private schools were allowed these schools offered an alternative to the public schools.

Can You guess it?
How about this one?
What about this one? It's a bit tricky.
Note: This prezi will have a lot
of clicks.

Employment in China
Urban Areas
Rural Areas
The way China finds how the employment is by residential registration and it's bit irregular because it splits the citizens by where they are located and taking note of their parentage.
In rural areas the government conducts a census, like ours every ten years they take it to find how many people are employed. Now a days more people are moving away from the rural areas which is affecting the markets that are family owned that sell fresh produce.
In urban areas
the government by taking an estimate of the workforce. Plus more people are migrating to the cities to find better work.
Family Life
Life in China has changed over the years. For example the one child policy and the nuclear family.
One-Child Policy
This policy has controlled the birth rate in China. But there are exceptions to this policy. Like in rural areas if the first born is a daughter they can try for a son. However this polocy and the tradition on having a son has affected the ratio of the male to female.
Nuclear families
Nuclear families are quickly becoming the normal thing. A nuclear family is when its just the mother, father and the children. This is happening mostly in the cities. Even though etended family, like aunts, uncles, and cousins visit at least once a year. The next generation won't have as many beacuse of the one child policy.
Due to a massive population in the urban areas the housing in China has bloomed by building more apartmentsfor the demand.
The government is trying to boost the GDP and how are they doing it? It's by building more apartments than needed to house people.
The government is planing to expand a rural housing program to rebuild old houses and rebuild them better.
In early China the Chinese would eat almost anything that is edible. Plus most emperors would first hold a cooking competition for him and his court before anything else.
A fact is that food is usually made in bite sized pieces. The reason is so that the food is ready to be picked up and eaten without cutting it. Also the traditional utensils are usually spoons and chopsticks. Sometimes they use knifes but almost never use a fork.
There are different styles of Chinese cooking. Most known and influential styles are Cantonese, Shandong, Jiangsu and Szechuan. All styles are different because of the area they live in and what they have available. But usually they still base the cooking on opposites like cold things balances hot things and so on. The criteria to make good food are color, taste, aroma and texture.
What country did the original fortune cookie come from???
Question Time!!!
Not the U.S.A.
Japan is the answer. Even though the U.S. is right that is the country the modern one started. Japan had a similar fortune cookie that a immigrant from Japan modified. Plus China considered the cookies "Too American" so the legends of it originated are proven false. Not so Chinese is it.
Staple Foods of China
Rice is one of the main foods that people eat. The type of rice people prefer is white rice. There are also different types of rice as well. Usually rice is used to make beer, wine and vinegars. Rice is used in many Chinese dishes.
Guess who this is?
Noodles can be made and eaten in many ways. Noodles come fresh or dry and can be made with rice or wheat flour. They can be served hot or cold with toppings, dry or with broth. Noodles also a symbol of a long and healthy life.
Soybeans are used to make Tofu which is another way that you can get your protein. Soy beans are also used to make Soy sauce, milk, paste and oil which are ingredients in Chinese cooking.
Wheat is usually grown in Northern China where people use it to make noodles, bread, dumplings, and steamed buns.
Martial Arts
China one if the main birth places of eastern martial arts. Kung Fu is the name the Chinese martial arts. Kung means achievement or merit and Fu means man.
Lunar New Year
The Lunar New Year is another name for the Chinese New year. The reason for the name is because it goes with the lunar calender which is the moon calender. This celebration goes on for 15 days. During this celebration red envelopes are distributed to the Children. The amounts can be anything. But usually the amount of money is 8 or 6 dollars in the U.S. currency. Also firecrackers are used durring the celebrations. But because of reported accidents the governments made laws that ban private displays in urban areas. In substitute some governments show huge public displays.
