To celebrate Chinese New year, we took part in a lot of activities. We listened to the story of the Animals of the Zodiac and how the tradition of Chinese New Year came to be. We loved listening to this fun adventure and discovering how each animal was assigned to a different year. Next, we investigated what animal was appointed in the years we were born. Most girls were born in the year of the ox or the year of the tiger. We used pictures to correctly sequence the order of the animals and we investigated some Chinese symbols. We also made masks to represent each animal and used the masks to perform small plays.
