Storyboard Text

  • "This is the Tibet-Qinghai Plateau, a very dry plateau located in southwest China surrounded by towering mountains. On the southern edge of the plateau, the Himalayas mountain range has the tallest mountain in the world, Mount Everest, with it's peak at 29,000 feet high in altitude. Two major rivers begin in the plateau, the Huang He and the Chang Jiang. The plateau also has wolves and wildcat but little food or water."

  • "Here is the Taklimakan Desert, one of the most dangerous deserts in the world. The name "Taklimakan", means "once you go in, you will not come out". Legend says that 2 armies and 300 cities are buried way underground beneath sand dunes. The area is full of sand dunes and only has bushes and trees near rivers."

  • "The Gobi desert in China is one of the largest deserts in the world. While the Taklimakan desert is sandy, the Gobi desert is mostly stone and has few sand dunes. Lots of little pebbles and tiny bits of sand cover the area. Food is scarce and plants are small and widely apart from each other."

  • "Here we have the Northeastern Plain with rivers and lots of grass for animals. The Northern part of the plain has warm and short summers but dry and cold winters. The southern part has more water and mild temperatures. The major rivers in the plain are a shallow river called Liao and a deeper river called Sungari. In the winter, people use these rivers as roads. The natural vegetation is mostly grass in the area. The plain is too cold and dry to be growing crops in."

  • "Here is the North China Plain, it is sometimes called the "Land of the Yellow Earth". Some people say this because the ground has yellow limestone silt that comes from the Gobi desert. The Huang He, one of the world's longest rivers, carries yellow silt that fertilizes the ground making the plain a good place for growing crops. However the river does flood the area causing many disasters over the past hundred years."

  • "Over here are the Chang Jiang Basins located along the Chang Jiang river. This area is low and wet with many rivers and warm and wet climate. The vegetation may have been thick rainforest in ancient times. The longest river in the basins is the Chang Jiang. Chang Jiang means "long river" and is used to transport items to people. The river rarely floods and drops off fertile soil on the land. There was little area for growing crops or for animals but many people grew rice in the area.
