Storyboard Text

  • In the Northeastern plain the vegetation is mostly Prairie grass, which a long time ago was very helpful. Sometimes it is short, but warm and sometimes it can be dry and cold with maybe some milder weather. The two rivers that flow through these plains are Liao and Sungari.
  • The TIbet-Qinghai Plateau's elevation is more than 13,500 feet above sea level. Mount Everest; the tallest mountain in the world; is apart of this mountain range. The Huang He river and the Yellow river both begin in this mountain range; the Himalayas mountain range.

  • The North China plain is also sometimes called "The Land of the Yellow Earth." This is because it's ground is covered in limestone yellow silt which is blown in from the Gobi Desert due to strong winds. Huang He, the river that flows through the plains is also full of yellow silt. The silt that the river carries helps to fertilize the surrounding lands witch makes the North China Plain a great place to settle.
  • The Taklimakan Desert has a very interesting name. It's name means "Once you go in, you will not come out. " One legend says that two armies and 300 cities are buried 600 feet under the sand dunes of the Taklimakan Desert.

  • The Chang Jiang Basins has one river that runs through it and it is called the Chang Jiang (Long River). The rivers deposits help fertilize the surrounding lands too. The climate in the basins is mostly warm and wet. A long time ago, the vegetation may have been more of a thick rain-forest, but now it is more spread out.
  • The Gobi Desert stretches over 500,000 square miles! It is one of the worlds largest deserts. The Gobi Desert also has very few sand dunes. Actually, most of the desert is stony and rocky. It's surface is mostly made up of pebbles and small bits of sand. The vegetation is also sparse there. The plants are known to be small and spread apart.
