Storyboard Text

  • This Book is so cool! It's about something called the Silk Road. Apparently it's a network of smaller trade routes, that stretches out for more than four thousand miles Across Asia.
  • It says here, that a man named Zhang Qian, often called the father of the Silk Road, opened the travel route between China and it' neighbors.
  • Silk was a valuable trade item, because at first, the Chinese were the only ones who knew how to make it. 
  • Silk was very expensive and hard to get, but so was the glassware that the Romans made. Many Chinese and Roman travelers would trade silk for glassware.
