Great Ancient China Projects You Can Build Yourself by Lance Kramer

Ages 9 to 12 years. From Buddhism, feng shui, and porcelain pottery to gunpowder, dynasties, and trade routes, this interactive activity guide explores the incredible ingenuity and history of ancient China with over 20 hands-on projects. Comprehensive coverage of the ancient culture -- everything from the daily lives of both the rich and poor to the history of architecture, dynasties, religion, trade, and science -- are combined with step-by-step instructions for creating Chinese inventions with ordinary household materials. Key vocabulary, time lines, and factual sidebars are included to further educate young readers about this innovative society and its continuing influence on modern culture.
