Where is China?

China is near India, Mongolian, Pakistan, Russia, and many more other countrys. China is also near the Indian Ocean, and the Pacific Ocean. You might think that China has warmer summers and warmer winters but they do not. If you look on a map you see that China is lined up with the U.S.A.

Why did the Chinese come to the United States?

The Chinese started to come over to the USA in the 1900's. One of the reasons is that they thought that they were going to get lots of money and send it back home to their family. Also they came over because of the British. China and Britten where fighting and the Britten won. So then the Britten stared tacking there land. The war was called Opium 1839-1842. But sadly when they came over there was not a lot of jobs that the chines could do so they had do work in the mines for money.

The Great Wall of China.

They built the Great Wall of China 220-206 BC which is 14 years. It was built to keep out all of their enimeys like the Mongolia's. When they were building the wall lots of them had lots of experiences of building. They built the walls by smashing graverl and the earth.

The Terracotta Warriors and Horses.

The Terracotta warriors and horses where found by a farmer. He was digging and found a Terracotta warriors head. People say that Qin Shi Huang army built the horses and the warriors for him. Qin Shi Huang biggest fear was death! He tried to find a magical potion stay alive but he died. His people were afraid that if the other people new that there Emperor was dead they thought that the others would think they were weak (because they were) they would fight them and tack over. Qin Shi Huang was buried in a big tunnel and around him where the Terracotta warriors and horses to protect him and all of his riches. But when they were working on it one of their enemies one of there enemies closed of the entry and many could not get out. There are 4 sections of the Terracotta warriors and horses that they found. But one of them have nothing in it. They think that they never had time to finish it. Today the people found over 8,000 warriors. 520 horses, and 150 cavalry horses. They have not found the emperors tomb and his riches. Today there are still mistress to be fond.

Chinese clothes and hair

Like in other places men had short hair and the woman had long hair. But in China the men had the long hair and the woman did to. You might think why did they do that? The men grew out their hair in oner of their ans-esters. Then men also wearied dresses and the woman also wearied dresses. You might think that it was strange that men wore dresses and shirts and pants. The men dresses weren't like puffy and pink and like that. They were slim. But today the chines dress just like use.

1 small head Chines Cabbage (about 1 1/2 pounds)

1 teaspoon salt

Dipping sauce

Direction

Cut off and discard the stem of the cabbage, separate the leaves, then rinse and drain. Stack the leaves in piles and cut into thin slices. Turn and chop finely. IN a large bowl, combine the cabbage and salt and let sit for thirty minutes. (This will draw water out of the cabbage.) After thirty minutes, squeeze as much water out of the cabbage and drain. Add the pork, garlic chives, and seasoning. Combine thoroughly with your hands or wooden spoon. The mixture should be stiff and rather sticky. If it seems too thin, add another teaspoon of cornstarch.

Lightly dust a baking sheet with cornstarch. Pace one teaspoon of filling in the centrer of the dumpling skin. Spread a little water along the edges of the skin. Fold the skin over the filling to form a half-moon shape. Using the thumb and index finger of one hand, press the outside edges of the skin together, forming small pleats with one edge. The insid edge of the dumpling should bend with the curve of the half-moon shape. Placethe sealed dumpling on the baking sheet. Repeat the process untill all skins are filled. Repeat the process until all skins are filled. Heat two tablespoons of oil in a skillet. Add Gyoza and cook immediately cover pan tightly.
