Ancient China for Kids
For thousands of years, daily life in ancient China was much the same for most people, no matter what dynasty was in charge. Different dynasties were in charge of different parts of ancient China. Different dynasties rose to power. But nothing ever changed. China was isolated by its natural barriers. It was not until the very short lived Qin Dynasty that China was pulled together as one country. It was during the Han Dynasty that things began to change in ancient China, although most people remained poor farmers.
