1. I think the tang dynasty because they had many great achievements but the song didn’t have quit as many.
2. In the Tang dynasty they built the Grand Canal for one of its major achievements. The Song dynasty made the merit system for one of its achievements.
3. After 850 in the Song dynasty they started to lose control over there western parts of their land that they owned and more and more people started fighting with eachother.

Well for me i think they both are very good but probibly the song because it had more advantages it grew more things like the government.

printing,books,learning,arts,and trade.

Because the mongul tried to atack them. and because there ruler had died.

1) I would say the Song dynasty because one thing was they had the merit system, sencond of all they improved agriculture by having new strains of rice and better irrigation methods. They also supported many different forms of art such as music and poetry. They improved printing too. They also had books and learning.
2)Great Canal, merit system, improved printing, and books
3)There was fighting amoung many groups in China so it ended the Tang dynasty.

1. Song dynasty because, the Song rulers made many advances in government. They expanded the merit system of hiring government officials. And new strains of rice and better irrigation methods helped peasants grow more rice.
2. Some of the important inventions are silk, porcelain ,and a new way to print books.
3. The Mongols put the golden age of China to a end because they attacked China.

I think Tang because they made the grand canal and it grew in population and in his period they made walls surrounding the city.
Tbey had the grand canal,the wall,porcelain,silk and a way to print books.

The golden age ended because the mongols conquered them.

1. SONG of course. They cared more about learning. They created the merit system so people can get jobs and work for money. But they had to take test. They created b0ooks or a printer to make words on the books. They traded more with things they had.
2. They invented a printer they had porcelain. Painted on silk. A merit system (test)
The Grand Canal.

3. The Mongols came down and attacked China. They over through China.

1. I’d say the Song, because there were so much more inventions than the Tang dynasty. Some of their inventions were the merit system, which improved, they allowed farmers to produce two crops a year instead of one, food surpluses, porcelain, ceramics, silk, and the way they printed.

2. Tang inventions: the Grand Canal, Chang’an, and the tall walls protection. Song inventions: merit system, porcelain, ceramics, silk, and the way they printed.

3. A Chinese peasant led an uprising that overthrew the foreign rulers and ended Mongol rule of China.

I think Song dynasty was more successful because *ruld China from 960 to 1279 *They expanded the merit system. Inventtion in Tang and Song dynasty-1.silk 2.art objects 3.p.rint books 4many arts music,and poetry. How did Chiina age come to an end- china peasent led unprising that overthrew thr foregin rulers and ended Mongol rule of china in 1368.

Sia.Fletcher said...

1) I would have to say Song. Because the Song Dynasty found a better way to type and read. They had Movable Type.
2) Tang Dynasty- The Grand Canal
The Song Dynasty- Gunpowder, Smallpox Vaccine, Compass, And Movable Type.
3) Chinas Golden Age Came to an end because the Sui dynasty was defeated and the Tang over ruled them. Also because everybody else kinda just started fighting everybody.

Carson.Powers said...

I think the Tang because They had a great ruler and great accomplishments like the Grand Canal.
Inventions: Gunpowder, Compass, Smallpox Vaccine, Movable Type, Porcelain.
3. There was fighting among different groups within China which ended the Tang dynasty.

I think the Song Dynasty was more successful because they had more accomplishments like printing,arts, trade, and many other things.
The tang invented the
Grand Canal and walls.The Song Dyanasty invented the merit system and new printing types. they also toook a big part in learning, trade, and arts.
The Golden age ended because the Mongols coquered them.
