Chinese New Year unit study: Spring Festival lesson plans for Lunar New Year

It's the new year, time to go back to school (blah humbug!) For many, January and February are the longest, coldest, darkest months of the year. Spring vacation seems light years away. It always dark and gloomy and kids are anything but eager to go back to school or homeschooling lessons. So this is a great time to do something fresh and exciting in the classroom or homeschool. Why not explore the Chinese New Year (aka Lunar New Year) with all its color, festivity, fun and pageantry? Chinese New Year, or the Spring Festival, is a 15-day holiday that includes the charming Lantern Festival. CNY begins on February 8 in 2016 and celebrates the Year of the Monkey. Here's a two-week Chinese New Year classroom unit study of lesson plans with cross-curricular content connections in social studies, literature, writing, history, art, music, games, crafts and food.  Chinese New Year unit study: Spring Festival lesson plans for Lunar New Year
