                                                Walls we learned about

We learned that some walls are very important. We never used to think much about walls. But after this wall project we all learned something important about walls. Walls are or were very important and in some cases bad things would have happened without them. For example, back then without the Great Wall of China the Mongolians would attack the Chinese without notice. So the Chinese built the Great Wall of China with watch towers on it so they could look for the Mongolians when they would attack. We also learned about invisible walls. An example of an invisible wall is a  wall that is a barrier that can't be seen.
