Geography studies are a great way for your kids to learn about different countries, and with Chinese New Year being so recent a bunch of us have been looking for China activities for elementary kids. What amazes me is how many amazing things there are to do with China.
I’m going to freely admit I’m doing this round up more for my sake than everyone else’s because I want to do a belated Chinese New Year study with the kids tomorrow.
China activities for elementary in the kitchen
Eat your way through China– I’m cheating this is an entire category of awesome recipes to try
China activities for elementary that require a mess
Try Chinese calligraphy– seriously love the horse one
China activities for elementary using technology
Thousand Hand Guan Yin (since it’s in one of the Asian languages, I’m not 100% certain this is from China, but it’s gorgeous to watch)
Chinese history ideas
Make a timeline of Chinese history (cool figures included)
Books to learn about China
I’ve figured out my next 3 weeks of Featuring Ideas if you’ve got some stuff to go back and add in, mainly because ya’ll linked up so many great things last week I started 3 drafts, so find your old posts on these topics:
50 State Studies
Using maps creatively
Asian Studies (you guys shared several great Japan ones last week, and I focused on China here)
So, search through those archives and link them in. Ya’ll gave me a lot of great material this week. And I’m loving your current stuff too. Great posts last week.
