Hello, Whyvillians.

We were learning in Language Arts Class about the Great Wall of China. Well we really learned about the emperor who created it, and then it led to the wall as we learned. So I wanted to turn what I learned into an article! Everything typed in this article is from my knowledge. I hope you find this intresting, I sure did!

The Great Wall of China is one of the most visited areas to visit in the world! It is 6,700 kilometers, which happens to be 4,163 miles! It stretches from East China to West China.

The Great Wall of China was built around 15,000 years ago, by Qin Shi Huangdi, which was the first emperor of China during the Qin Dynasty. He built the Great Wall Of China so that he could sleep somewhere different every night and nobody would know where he slept. He did this daily routine because people that strongly disliked this Emperor wanted to kill him.

Quin Shi Huangdi was very violent, as well, he killed people often. Many people that built the Great Wall Of China died during the construction of this fabulous Wall. According to some history it is supposed to be known that each stone in the Great Wall of China represents a Human Being's life. Wow! That is so amazing there must've been many people that died during this construction.

The Great Wall of China is widely visited, not only by China, but by the whole world! Some people believe that you can see the Great Wall of China from the moon, even! It must be more huge than I thought, well we never know it could be a false statement, who knows? If anyone has been to the Moon I challenge you to write an article about your experience and if you could see the Great Wall of China!
