A big part of 2nd grade Social Studies is learning about the holidays and cultures of others around the world. One holiday that is truly different than any holiday that my students are used to celebrating is the Chinese New Year. This year, it will be celebrated on February 19th. We’ve already began learning about this fun custom in our class.
We started learning about the Chinese New Year by watching and discussing the Chinese New Year presentation. My kids really loved the Dragon Dance and the Lion Dance. After seeing all of the firework displays, many of my students were wishing that they could visit China! It really is a tradition that is unlike any tradition that my students celebrate.
I’m sharing this FREEBIE from my Chinese New Year Unit. Enjoy!
