China Week, the Finale

To finish off China week, we read a story about the Chinese Zodiac. Do you know why the rat is the symbol of the first Chinese year? We looked at a picture of a Chinese statue called the "Flying Horse". We also learned a little about how Buddha came to be, what he taught, and how his teachings were spread. Finally we tried our hand at origami. It was fun, but I am not precise enough to do it well. I think I'll stick to scrapbooking!

Tell the kids that Grandma and Grandpa went to Hong Kong and Uncle JR and cousin Camilla spent part of last year teaching in China. I think they have lots of pictures.
