First grade artists are finishing up their Asian inspired art projects from our cultural focus of China and Japan.
They loved learning about China and the giant panda bears. We looked at cool panda videos and read Barney Saltzberg’s sweet book about Chengdu, the panda bear who could not, would not, fall asleep!
And of course their pandas are way too cute!
We also learned about the Chinese New Year and celebrated by making hats and Lucky Fu Good Fortune wall hangings. Gung Hay Fat Choy – Best Wishes and Congratulations!
I can: tell two facts about Chinese pandas; talk about similarities and differences in American and Chinese New Year celebrations.
