This digital program allows students to visit the Chinese Museum from their classroom. Unlike the dragons of the west, the Chinese dragon is seen as a good and wise creature that brings luck. So powerful was the dragon, that emperors in ancient China were believed to be the dragon’s descendants. Students will learn about the Chinese dragon, its role in the Chinese New Year parade and other important symbols in Chinese culture. Facilitated via Webex, the program features videos of the Chinese Museum collection and includes drawing and writing activities. A fun worksheet is provided for students to consolidate their adventure. Focus areas: Chinese festivals and customs.
