The Chinese New Year – a lesson plan

There is quite a lot of reading material here. First there is a lead in with a discussion about some fortune cookie sayings. Then there is a general article about the Chinese New Year, followed by an introduction to the Chinese calendar where stds find out which animal represents their birth year. Then they read & discuss an interpretation of their animal characteristics.

    Hello – I tried out the first Chinese New Year lesson and I like it – lots of good ideas. However, the first thing you do it type in your birth year and it gives you your animal. My isn’t correct. It says I’m a mouse, and really I’m a rat. (well, not really, really!) It this a translation error? Or maybe it’s because I am old as dirt?
