Title: Amazing Chinese Inventions


1
Amazing Chinese Inventions
  • BY JAMES WINSTON JAVIER CLAXTON JILLIAN FRISCIA
    AND LUCAS JOY

2
Chinas greatest inventions!
  • The Chinese have invented so many great, awesome,
    useful, and very helpful inventions. Throughout
    Chinas long history people still use these
    inventions all around the world 24/7. Some of
    these inventions are
  • Paper/money, printing, gunpowder, matches,
    toothbrushes, fishing rods, kites, and many more
    inventions to come.
  • I think a lot of other people will make some
    inventions that will change the world.
  • This is a Chinese rocket launcher

Chinese Wood Block printing
  • Chinese Wood Block printing is one of Chinas
    greatest inventions, heres why
  • Throughout Chinas long history, Wood Block
    printing has occupied an important position as a
    handcrafted manufacture. Wood Block printing has
    made a tremendous contribution to the spread of
    knowledge. The first illustration of Wood Block
    printing was during the tang dynasty by a man
    named Bi Sheng. Bi Sheng must have been a very
    smart person.

Chinese Movable printing
  • Another one of chinas greatest inventions is
    moveable type printing. This printing station
    was created by a man named Bi Sheng who also
    created Wood Block printing. Later on the
    technology spread to Korea so people all around
    Asia used the printing. I wonder what Asia would
    be like if Bi Sheng didnt invent movable
    printing.

Chinese paper money
  • One of the greatest inventions in the world,
    paper was first created in china in the second
    century. The invention paper also helped the
    Chinese invent the worlds first paper money. The
    Chinese coin was made of bronze, copper, and had
    a square hole in the middle. I wonder what the
    world would be like without the Chinese inventing
    money.

6
Chinese Gunpowder
  • Gunpowder was one of Chinas greatest inventions,
    it was used for explosives and guns. They used
    Gunpowder for the explosives in barrels and
    bombs. Also Gunpowder was used for guns, in the
    past guns had to be loaded after each shot. Do
    you think Gunpowder can be used for other
    reasons?

7
Chinese Matches
  • Another invention from China is matches. The
    reason matches were useful then was because they
    had no electricity so they could use a match for
    light. The reason now is so we dont need to
    waste electricity and save it for later and
    instead use matches. Do you think matches are
    useful?

8
CHINESE KITE
  • The kite was a great invention. It was invented
    in China around three thousand years ago. No one
    really knows when the first kite was flown, but
    legend has it that a Chinese farmer tied his hat
    to a string to keep it from blowing away. The
    earliest kites were used to carry messages to
    signal people from far away. Over time, kite
    flying developed into a hobby for the Chinese and
    is now enjoyed worldwide.

9
  • The Chinese made these early kites out of bamboo
    and silk. When Tsai Lun invented
    paper during the Han dynasty people began to make
    kites out of paper instead of silk. By the time
    of Tangs dynasty, most kites were made out of
    paper instead of silk. I think the Chinese made a
    fun and very useful invention

10
CHINESE EARTHQAKE DETECTOR
  • The earthquake detector was another great
    invention from China. The earthquake detector was
    invented by Zhang Heng. Zhang lived during the
    Han dynasty.

11
Giant Invention
  • Zhangs earthquake detector was a giant barrel
    almost 6 feet round. Eight dragons hung down
    along the outside of the barrel. Under each
    dragon sat eight bronze toads, each dragon had a
    small ball in their mouth. A thin stick was
    placed down the center of the barrel. When the
    ground shook the stick would drop the ball into
    one of the eight toads mouths. The sound of the
    ball striking one of the eight toads would let
    people know there was an earthquake coming and
    would give them a signal of where the earthquake
    was coming from. I think the earthquake detector
    was a very important and useful invention.

12
CHINESE FIREWORKS
  • This is a picture of a firework called a firework
    rainbow.
  •  
  • Fireworks were invented by the ancient Chinese
    back in the 7th century. Fireworks were in a lot
    of festivals back then. In China, Chinese people
    could get fireworks from market vendors. Some
    people even wrote about fireworks! One person who
    wrote about fireworks called them Chinese
    flowers. The people who invented fireworks were
    called pyro technicians.
  •  

13
SEVENTEENTH CENTURY FIREWORKS
  • Chinese fireworks were popular around the 17th
    century. A quote from a person was they make
    such fireworks no one in Europe has ever seen.
    During the Song Dynasty grand firework displays
    were held. Fireworks were a culture of China and
    had its origin there until the knowledge of
    fireworks spread to many other cultures and
    societies.

Conclusion
  • Inventions all around the world have gotten
    better. Do you want to invent something? If you
    do you should try.
