Introduction - Purpose Rationale China is a very old country with much history dating baEmperor Shi Huangdi is best known for his ability to unite the warring states to create on empire.
He was of the Qin dynasty.
The word Qin is pronounced chin.
The name China came from this rulers name.
The students will become aware of the accomplishments and failings of Qin Shi Huangdi.
During this time, the people of China invented printing, gunpowder, fireworks, the compass, and kites.
The Chinese workers build the worlds longest wall and its longest canal.

Refining research skiThe Seven Chinese Broththe introduction/rationale above.
Then continue by saying that although these brothers are fictive characters, they helped to give justice to the tyrannical Emperor Shi Huangdi.
Through history reports that he actually died in 210 B.C.while on an inspection tour of the empire, just eleven years after creating China.
Begin the explanation given to me by Dr.Graff, my instructor in the East Asian class taken spring of 2002, explaining the name being used for this emperor.
I will be referring to the Emperor in this study by Qin Shi Huangdi (using up-to-date Pinyin rather than older Wade-Giles Chin Shih Huang-ti).
This is his title, not his name.
The word Qin is the name of his state and dynasty, Shi means first, and Huangdi means awesome or sem-divine ruler (emperor).
This could be translated the title as First Emperor of Qin,: or First August Emperor of Qin.
His real name is Ying Zheng.
Ying is his family name, and Zheng is the given name.
In Pinyin the Zh is like a j and the e is close to a u, so Zheng sounds very much like junk except that there is a g at the end instead of a k.
Qin Shi Huangdi was 13 years old when he went out with troops to conquer a neighboring province.
Twenty-five years later, he was the Emperor of China.
He took six independent warring regions and made one huge country named China.
The Emperor had an imperial compound that spread 70 miles.
He had many places he would stay with secret passages so no one would know his whereabouts at any one time
He never slept in the same place twice.
The Emperor led his country as a Legalist ruler.This government would focus on agriculture and war.
The government sets up laws for how people to act accordi 4.
The Great Wall - He ordered his people to link together the different walls of the widespread towns to make the Great Wall.
This was to relieve his worry of an invasion from the north.
He built buildings that were replicas (copies) of the palaces of kings he had conquered.
There were secret passageways.
This was a show of his pride.
Downfallsconvicted on crimes were punished severely be beaten ten strokes for each cash of value, up to twenty cash, and the object written off.
In exchange for two degrees of aristocratic rank, a person may free a father or mother who has been made a convict servant.Debt workers may return home for ten days when it is time to plow or weed.2.
This is labor without pay.
The end is seen to justify the means.
Treachery, cruelty and inhumanity toward the people was nothing when it meant what they would have in the end.
A Qin saying has been A thousand die so that a million may live.3.
He persecuted the scholars of the country and destroyed books.
He had his soldiers burn every text they
He even ordered them to bury hundreds of scholars alive!
After his death, the people of China revolted against this government.
The peasant who led the revolt became that next emperor, the first of the Han Dynasty.He taxed people heavily.
Again, those who could not pay would be laborers until debt was paid to the empire.Lesson 2- Tell the kids the book going to be read won was a 1989 William A chops, Chinese Art, inventions, foods, Terra Cotta soldiers, etc.
Lesson 3-Terra Cotta Soldiers
In 1974, laborers digging a well near the city of Xian came upon the 2,200
year- old tomb of the Qin Emperor, Emperor Shi Huangdi.
They had uncovered one of the centurys most amazing archeological finds.
The dead emperors tomb was guarded by more than 6,000 life-sized terra cotta warriors.
Each warrior was created with an individual face and body.
Some were fat, some thin, some had mustaches, some wore special armor.
Some appeared to march.
Others knelt with their bows ready to shoot.
Terra cotta horses pulled terra cotta chariots.
