China is a country in Asia that has existed for more than 5,000 years. There are many religious beliefs in China like: Confucianism, Buddhism, etc. Pandas are a very important animal in China, they are one of the things that they are most known for. They are most known for their Great Wall, which is more than 13,000 miles long.

In China, there was a very bad time period, with a lot of suffering: the Chinese Cultural Revolution. Many people were hungry and didn’t have a lot of money, and there were many fights that led to deaths. The Revolution occurred in 1966 until 1976 when the leader of it passed away. It happened because the communist leader, Mao Zedong, believed that China’s government was being led in the wrong direction. Mao Zedong said that he believed that the government was becoming more secretive, but his real reason for taking control was that he wanted more power in the government.

The main people involved in the Chinese Cultural Revolution was the leader Mao Zedong, the government, and The Red Guards, which were the people who worked supporting Mao Zedong. If the main reason for the Chinese Cultural Revolution wasn’t for them to make China and its government better, it would be because Mao Zedong wanted more power for himself. The Chinese Cultural Revolution finally ended in 1976 because Mao, the leader passed away.

There were many outcomes because of the Chinese Cultural Revolution, including that it impacted childrens’ education because The Red Guards were attacking teachers. The factories were affected because there was a short supply of resources, and there were many deaths.

A short term effect of the Cultural Revolution were the deaths, and the lack of education and resources. It is significant today because it changed most of China’s old customs, habits, culture, and the people’s ways of life. There were no revolutions after the Chinese Cultural Revolution.
