I've been giving some thought to Chinese New Year which is celebrated on 19th February this year, and thought I'd share some resources from our Pinterest site. I have included a range of pins that caught my eye to give you ideas for activities and provide a feel for what the celebrations are all about. Feel free to share and add your own pins.
A great way to introduce the topic is through storytelling. I have included the story of 'The Great Race' from Barefoot Books because it tells the tale of the Chinese zodiac in a way that is very accessible for children. It also has end notes about the Chinese calendar, the festivals and the animals that rule each year. You can obtain a copy of the book here http://ow.ly/HcndL
