This year the Lower Elementary classrooms will study ancient China. We began our study with a co-lab. Students participated in one of the following activities: kite making, instrument making, baking fortune cookies, cooking fried rice, cooking dumplings and Chinese writing. Soon we will ask the kids what they already know about ancient China and what they want to learn more about. We will also study various biomes, read stories, visit the Peabody Essex Museum and other activities.
