Gung Hay Fat Choy!

Third grade created Chinese New Year dragon heads to celebrate the New Year.  We read about the Chinese culture and watched a bit of a Chinese New Year parade on the SmartBoard.  We talked about symmetry and how to create symmetry within their artwork.  I play a CD that has traditional and contemporary Chinese music to inspire the students as they are creating.  Once the heads are completed we have a parade through the K/1 hallway.  The students not only have a great time creating their dragon heads, but gain an appreciation of another culture and how they celebrate their holiday.
