The Great Wall of China

Do good fences make good neighbours? In this BrainPOP UK movie, Tim and Moby investigate the biggest fence of all: the Great Wall of China! In this educational, animated movie, you'll learn all about this gigantic defensive barrier--who built it, when it was built, and who it was defending against. Why are some parts of it better built than others? Who did it fail to keep out and why did construction on the wall stop in the 17th century? How high? How long? How wide? Find out the answers to all these questions and more! Along the way, you'll also learn some Chinese history, and the importance of that Great Wall.
