The ancient Chinese created many things we use today, including paper, silk, gunpowder, the compass, the crossbow, printing, matches, wheelbarrows, the decimal system, waterwheels, the sundial, astronomy, porcelain, lacquer, pottery wheel, fireworks, paper money, seismograph, tangrams, medicines, dominoes, jump ropes, kites, tea ceremony, folding umbrellas, ink, calligraphy, animal harness, playing cards, the abacus, wallpaper, ice cream, and more! They worshipped many gods and goddesses and magical beings, and honored their ancestors every day.
