Explore the mysteries of China and broaden your child’s cultural
awareness of the world’s most populated country. Students will learn to
greet and count in Chinese, as well as learn names of animals and
basic foods. Our cultural learning highlights the Chinese Zodiac, the
Giant Panda and the legendary Monkey King. We will delve into the
ancient inventions of China and create and play the traditional Chinese
games of Feng Che/Pin-Wheel, Tiao-Fang-zi/Chinese Hop Scotch and
Zhua Ma Jiang/Catching the Dominos. We will also enjoy sampling
Chinese foods for snacks. Your children will be exposed to an array of
fun activities as we explore the Middle Kingdom.
