Chinese New Year begins February 19th for 2015, and it is the year of the goat. Kid World Citizen
shows 15 crafts for preschool and primary. Also recommended are several books, so hop on over for a visit. If you click on the Asia pull down menu, you will find more resources to help your students understand the Chinese culture.
I am pretty excited about a 20 page freebie that I just found at Sil's Teaching Resources TpT page. She is offering a layered book that will be perfect for independent research.
