Day of the Dragon King

Second graders explore various cultures to compare them to their own culture. They read Mary Pope Osborne's Day of the Dragon King and identify the Chinese New Year, Chinese Zodiac, and how the zodiac differs from ours. After reading, they practice creating Chinese characters, create dragon pictures, discuss silk as a part of Chinese trade, create a Venn diagram, and research China websites.
