Celebrating Chinese Culture

1

As a supplement to their social studies curriculum, third-graders enrolled in Theresa Stevens’ and Kristen Rang’s class at Blue Point Elementary School have been learning about China.

According to Ms. Stevens, this unit has been full of traditional stories, games, and customs that helped bring Chinese culture to life for the students. Topics discussed included geographical location, native languages, history, foods and the countries’ many achievements.  

Additionally, two students, Dillon Bowen and William Graham, applied their engineering skills to design a highly impressive replica of the Great Wall of China, receiving assistance from their classmates in order to bring it to life. To end the unit on Chinese culture, the class learned about chopsticks and practiced using them while eating rice and fried noodles.
