Our current unit is all about traditions and celebrations. Today we learned about Chinese New Year. We learned that the celebration begins between December and February. It starts when there is a a new moon and ends when there is a full moon. We also learned about foods and parades in China. Lanterns are a sign of good luck in the new year also. So of course we had to make our own lanterns today!
