Honouring the Dragon

During January and February we were learning about IMG_4187[1]Chinese New Year and studying what happens during this celebration.  We have been discussing how it is similar to other celebrations we have already read about at school.

IMG_4186[1]Students have been listening to stories and non-fiction books about this celebration, singing songs and saying chants related to this special day.

We have been IMG_4199[1]creating art to help celebrate this day, painting dragons, creating dragon puppets and making a large papier-mache dragon head for our parade at the end of the celebration.  Here are some of our creations.
