FC: Around the Ming Dynasty by Audrey, Michael, Amanda, Kaele
1: The Ming Dynasty is a very interesting culture to study about. They existed in China, about 400 years ago. You will learn about the technology, transportation, economy and weapons of the Ming Dynasty.
2: An important element of culture that we learned about was the technology .It was made to protect China from evaders from the North and runaways. The Great Wall of China is 2,485 miles long and 40 feet high.
3: Warriors were very important to the Ming Dynasty. They protected the culture and fought for them in battles. They were well trained in swordplay, tai chi, and kung fu. No matter how much you see it in the movies, they do not make loud, unnecessary sounds when they hit things.
4: An important element of culture that we learned about was transportation .An interesting artifact was the ships they have. This artifact was very important to this culture because they used it to bring food and others to there culture. Some ships could hold five hundred men. It could travel three thousand miles. I wish that I could have see these ships in person.
5: Another important element of culture we learned about was the Ming Dynasty economy. An important artifact was the Imperial Palace. The Imperial Palace has over 9,000 rooms! It has a large moat built around it. The Imperial Palace would be a great place to live.
