Take Chinese philosophies and show Ms. Kyle
For centuries Chinese emperors encouraged the development of science and technology. The Chinese mastered techniques that did not appear in the west until centuries later. When they did reach other areas it was because the ideas were carried along the Silk Road and other trade routes. These developments are inventions that have contributed to the advancement of technologies around the world.
In your opinion which invention left a legacy on the rest of the world? Choose an invention and investigate it to demonstrate your knowledge and understanding of China’s legacy and the impact left on ancient and modern China, as well as the rest of the world.
Choose ONE invention. Research and take notes for an informative essay explaining who invented it (IF known), how it works, the importance of the invention, and how is it still used today (connection). An essay, oral presentation and a plaque will be the final outcome.
