Chinese Culture with Miss Panda: Lion Dance and Dragon Dance

Year of the Rooster

Year of the Rooster

 

The Chinese New Year celebration is a 15-day festivity.  With all the Spring Festival cultural events going on around the world this is a great time to locate one and to experience the celebration in person in your area.  If there is nothing similar locally you can join me to see what it is like.  I got a chance to visit Chinatown in Washington DC.  The year of the Rooster parade was filled with diversity and joyful fun.  Can you see what I fed the lion in the video?  Ask your child to see what s/he thinks?  Personalized Question and Answers are listed below.

*Replace Miss Panda with other names to reinforce the language input.  Great fun for circle time! *
