World Travelers!

Thursday was a very exciting day in class! First, we "traveled" to China to celebrate Chinese New Year. We talked about how 2015 is the year of the goat, we watched videos of the dragon dance on youtube, we learned how to write numbers in Chinese from 1-12, and we made Chinese lanterns. Later in the afternoon, we "traveled" to New Orleans, Louisiana to celebrate Mardi Gras, or as we learned another name, Fat Tuesday. We talked about the meaning of that day and what it represents. We made decorative Mardi Gras masks which are displayed in the hallway.
