Storyboard Text

  • We have traveled back in time to the Han Dynasty! This kind lady is going to tell and show as all about it!
  • Hey!
  • Let's start with Warfare. Historians estimate that Han armies had 130,000 to 300,000 men! The Hans were the among the first to make iron swords. They wore fish scale armor to be able to move around a lot in the armor. The Han also liked crossbows! They even used kites for military purposes. 
  • WOW
  • Hello! I work for the Emperor! In the government the Emperor needs lots of help from people like me! There are many things we have to do! Some of us maintained the roads and canals! Others make sure we have enough food. See we officials are very useful!
  • Well.... umm.... cool I guess.
  • WOW!!!!!
  • Agriculture! Han farmers were expected to grow enough food for their families and help stock grain houses. They also had to make their clothes and such. The chain pump helped farmers a lot! It made it easier to move water from low places up to the fields. The plow also was very useful!  
  • Wow!!
  • Last, industry. The two most important industries were silk and salt! Salt was valued because it preserved meat and veggies. Silk was very valuable and it was traded on the Silk road. We will talk about that another time. 
  • Nice!
  • Wow! That was so cool! I liked everything, although, the official was a little full of himself!
  • Ha! I had fun! See ya later! Bye!!!!
