Resources for Teaching – Chinese New Year

Happy Chinese New Year! Last winter, our J put together a project based on this celebration. Interesting study for our whole family. These are the links for online resources that he used. I checked them and all are still active and most have been updated for this year.

Chinese New Year is Jan. 31 this year!  2014 is the year of the horse.  My J has already started a special project about the origins, traditions, and celebrations of Chinese New Year.  Below are some awesome links we’ve found for this project.  The whole family has been involved with helping him and we’re all learning!
