This year we went out for a special Chinese lunch and read two books: The Great Wall of China by Leonard Everett Fisher, and Ms. Frizzle's Adventures: Imperial China by Joanna Cole and Bruce Degen. The Great Wall of China is a concise history of the building of the Great Wall, and Ms. Frizzle's Adventures contains tons of facts about China as Ms. Frizzle and the gang travel back in time 1000 years and learn about Chinese culture and history.
|For all ages--the history of the Great Wall.|
|This book is packed full of information.|
We added a new critter to our growing menagerie: a teeny baby beta. The boys named him Small Noodle Big Bowl.

And, I found a neat painting/collage thumbprint Chinese lantern activity on Let's Go Fly a Kite. Go check out this super-cute activity.
