Transcript of Our Cheesy Movie for Mrs. Crisp

By: Allison Maddox & Scarlett Patino Our Project for Ms. Crisp Porcelain Many people believe that porcelain was invented by Tao-Yue in 600's. He later added different types of clay to make the white porcelain. Over 300 years later, the art was perfected with more translucent materials.Porcelain is very thin and could be painted many colors. Porcelain was one of the most highly prized objects in China.Today, many people refer to porcelain dishware as "China". Magnetic compass The compass was first used for fortune telling in the 3rd century B.C.E. People soon noticed that it aligned itself in a North/South position. Iron ore (magnetite) happened to line itself also. The Chinese scientists then learned how to "make the magnets" by heating the ore to a high temperature, then cooling them in a North/South position. It also worked to rub a steel needle on a piece of lodestone. The movie you are about to watch contains some really cheesy content. If you are lactose intolerant, DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT watch this video! Just kidding. Ok, if you die laughing at us, you have been warned! WARNING! Thank you for watching! No porcelain dolls were harmed in the making of this video. Just to make sure... Porcelain Dolls Today, the compass is used for navigation at sea when stars are not able to be used. Also, with the technology we have today, the compass could be considered an early version of the GPS. Resources In 1770 the first head of a porcelain doll was made in England. They had hair, teeth, a mouth, tongue, ears, and eyes. They teeth were glued into the mouth.The first porcelain doll with shoulders was made in Germany. Although England started it, they were passed across the world, each country putting in a different touch of their own. They don't really sell a lot of porcelain dolls now, but some people still collect them. www.etsy.com
