As a culmination to their multi-week study on China, Academy Street Elementary School third-grade students celebrated their newfound knowledge with a weeklong Chinese New Year event.

During the study, the students learned about the Chinese culture through photographs and written words, including how red is the color of good luck and the capital region. During the celebration, the students fashioned paper lanterns and dragon figures and learned to write several Chinese characters on paper scrolls. They also got a taste for the region by sampling some well-known Chinese dishes and attended an in-school field trip called “Go China” with presenter Patricia Shih.
