I think the compass is the best invention. The reason why I believe it’s the best invention is because it can help you navigate your way to where you’re going.

I think paper is the greatest invention of chinese history because if we didn't have it, people would be drawing on the walls or floors. We wouldn't be able to make paper airplanes.

I beleive Its gunpowder because gunpowder was the first chemical explosive and the only known invention in the 19th century.

I think silk is the best invention from ancient China because, it made them rich, and powerful and it made them friends with a lot of other people like the Romans. And they could make clothes with the silk.

Jacob.Mutziger said...

I think that silk is the best invention for the Chinese because………….. it made them rich, famous around the world because everyone wanted it, and it made good clothing.

I think paper is the best invention. Because we use it a lot at school, may be people at work use it for printers. And it is important to us because we still use it today and so did they when they made it.And cashiers use it for receipt.

I Think the best Invention the Chinese gave us was Paper. Paper Started in about 105 A.D. It influenced the learning and the arts. The paper soon spread to Asia and Europe. This is because we still use paper today. It helps us write on it. It makes learning easier. It helps us from still scratching into the clay liked they did in the old times. I also think that it helps technology in skilled ways. It keeps valuable records on it, learning materials, important information.

Paper, because to this day we still follow that and use paper. Paper was made a LONG time ago. If the Chinese peoples didn't invent that we would of still been using clay! Paper was invent in AD 105. It was made during the Qin dynasty.

Valerie_Neuharth said...

Jevyn...no one uses the compass anymore...how was it so wonerful then?

Collin Muller said...

I think the plow was the greatest invenchen because it helped them farm and saved people from starving.

Emily.Sinkie said...

I think that the invention of paper is the best invention of the ancient Chinese people. The reason I think it is the best invention is because it has such a big influence on people all over the world today. We use it in school all the time. If we didn’t have paper we wouldn’t be able to learn all the stuff we do today like math. We use paper for many things, and that is why I think paper is the greatest invention EVER.

Valerie_Neuharth said...

Nyq'e, Wyatt and Karin.....paper is ruining our environment. Can't we blame the Chinese for WORLD DESTRUCTION?????

Carson.Powers said...

I think paper was the best invention in chinese history. Because we wouldn't HAVE chinese history if they didnt have paper. But Archaeological evidence shows that paper may have already been used before that time. Paper was sooo good that it replaced papyrus from Egypt. The paper WAS made out of real tree bark,hemp,and even old rags. Thats why i think paper was the best!

wyatt said...

NO becouas what would we write on.

allison.barth said...

I think that silk was the Chinese best invention and because it is still with us today. The reason is because that the Chinese kept it a secret so everyone wanted it meant if you whore It would mean that your rich. All of the Chinese whore it because there country made it. And it was nice to where it made you look rich. It was valuable. How people in the world got to where it without being in China is because they went on the Silk Road. The Silk Road was a long road that went through a big dessert.

Valerie_Neuharth said...

Emily is contributing to world destruction as well......I wonder who invented Recycle, Reduce, Reuse.....I hope the Chinese

Nyqe.Long said...

Sure but thats whats Recyclings for.

jevyn.sharping said...

Well some people might use a compass. I don't but some people might!

Valerie_Neuharth said...

Ummm....who even wears silk anymore? I used to, in 1990! How could it have been the greatest invention ever?

izzy.tyrell said...

The Chinese first used wooden scrolls and bones. Then in A.D. 105 the Chinese recorded one of their greatest achievements: the invention of paper. Paper influenced and the arts. After several centuries, the use of paper was spread across Asia into Europe. Eventually paper replaced papyrus from Egypt.

karin t. said...

no, i mean would if we still used clay tablets????????????????

james.medicinehorn said...

yeah what would we write mrs neuharth

Valerie_Neuharth said...

Well Wyatt....what about an Ipad, you can write on that???

Valerie_Neuharth said...

Valerie_Neuharth said...

miranda.fisher said...

the compess is the one that I think is so cool, that they infented.I will tell you how it looks. There is a scouare with a bowlin the midel of it of it.In the bowl is a small spune, it is like gravity, like some sort of medille ateraction that showing the way. The spun moves north,south,east,and west.It is very useful for salers,and travelers

lance.brauchi said...

Silk was the best invention the Chinese people made. Because the silk would be able to make the clothes and stuff for the Chinese. They need it for their clothes so they wouldn’t be naked all the time.

emilie.cummings said...

I think that the compass is the best invention from china. It is used in airplanes and on ships so people can know how to get some place. So bikers dot get lost.

Jacob.Mutziger said...

^miss neuharth

Maria.Stryzewski said...

I think the best invetion they made is paper... beacuse we need paper to right our records down like medicine,Technology,taxes and other impotant stuff down. And we still depend on paper today!!! (2011)

allison.barth said...

Probably paper would be then. bacause we use paper alot these days.

Valerie_Neuharth said...

James....find me a picture of a Chinese person wearing silk.... and post the link.

michaella.salisbury said...

One of the greatest invention that the Chinese made I think is the silk. The silk was a valuable fabric that gave them the name of the road which is The Silk Road. They made silk from silk worm eeewwww , but awesome. They didn’t just trade silk on that road they traded nuts glass, ivory, and other good. The Chinese would have towers out along the Silk Road to protect the traders because they wanted to have their money that they were going to trade with. The people in the towers would set a fire from the towers to let the other people know that robbers are coming. The Chinese only wore silk maybe every one there know how to make this silk. They would not share their way to make silk they kept it a big secret and no one around them know how make a valuable like silk.

Valerie_Neuharth said...

They didn't have Ipads in ancient TIMES? shoot......maybe like Karin said, why not clay tablets?

Tiana.Whiting said...

paper
I think that paper is the greatest invention of China because they used it for a living like arties and a lot of people used it for putting info in social studies books now what do you think about that mrs.neuharth hahaha. And it helped teachings and leanings and replaced papyrus.

Emily.Sinkie said...

Well what would we do our math problems on? And if we didn’t have paper then we wouldn’t learn to READ and WRITE.

Collin Muller said...

never said anything about plows

jevyn.sharping said...

I bet there's a million people out there who uses a compass....... I dont know anybody out there who uses a compass but i bet a tonnnnnn of people do!

Valerie_Neuharth said...

Allison is destroying the environment too! ALL YOU PAPER PEOPLE....GIVE ME ANOTHER GOOD REASON TO USE PAPER, BESIDES SCHOOL....bet you cannot give me more than 3 reasons....

karin t. said...

wyatt said...

Bcouas who wants to use clay tablets these days there so old.

Valerie_Neuharth said...

Lance, people wouldn't be naked. Remember, they also wore paper clothing.

karin t. said...

tynice.loudner said...

Some of Chinese best inventions was silk, Paper and the compass. And today we use paper to write on and if we didnt have paper we would have anything to write on.

jevyn.sharping said...

karin t. said...

Valerie_Neuharth said...

Well for one reason is for business. They need paper to do law stuff on and they need it for signing land to each other and stuff like that.

Valerie_Neuharth said...

3. you use it to read and write

Teah Sl said...

I think paper because we use it to day like in school at work and a lot more places. And the paper influenced learning and the arts in China. But after several centuries, the use of paper spread across Asia and into Europe.
