Learning Birthdays With Chinese Calendar

Students participate in a visual arts lesson that focuses on patterns used in a macaroni necklace that represents the students' birthdays in the Chinese calendar. They compare the Chinese calendar to the one used in America and look at the animal that is represented in the year of their birth. Finally, they color that animal and make a necklace that shows the appropriate color pattern for their birthday.
