Chinese New Year Activities for School

For many of us, January and February are the longest, coldest, darkest months of the year. Spring vacation seems a long way off. Teachers and homeschoolers, this is a great time to pull out a fresh exciting batch of lessons for your class or home school group. Why not explore the Chinese New Year? Chinese New Year begins January 31 in 2014. 2014 is year of the horse. Here is a unit with enough lessons for a two week unit. You'll find social studies, literature, writing, art, music, craft and food lessons.  Chinese New Year Lesson Planner and Unit
