Animals of the Chinese Zodiac
http://edsitement.neh.gov/lesson-plan/animals-chinese-zodiac
Animals of the Chinese Zodiac
The Chinese lunar calendar dates back to the second millennium BC. Unlike our calendar, which numbers the years progressively from a given time (the birth of Christ), the Chinese calendar is cyclical. Each cycle is made up of 12 years; after the 12th year, the cycle is repeated.

Chinese New Year Decorations CNY
http://www.chinatown-online.org.uk/class_newyear.html
Chinese New Year Decorations CNY
Decorations are an important feature of the celebrations for the Chinese New Year. One of the main forms of decoration are the 'Red Couplets', which are Chinese good luck sayings written on red paper, often with gold trimmings and usually made up of four Chinese characters which ask for luck in terms of long life, wealth etc.
Chinatown Online has provided a Chinese New Year couplet for use in classroom activities. It is in the form of a graphic which you should either download and print onto an A4 sheet of paper (preferably red!) or print straight from the browser. The A4 sheet should be cut in half from top to bottom, and the two strips placed on either side of a door. The graphic is available either with the characters prefilled in, or in outline so they may be coloured in in the classroom.

Chinese New Year
This is a love story about a man and a white snake. The first short tale was found during the Tang Dynasty (618 AD). Thatís a cautionary, vigilant and tragic story of a man in love with a lady in white.
The scenes of West Lake and Thunder Pagoda were added and the central theme was established during the Song Dynasty (960 AD).
The entire story was completed during the Ming Dynasty (1368 AD).
It was rewritten to beautify characters in some episodes in Ching Dynasty (1644 AD).
