Award Project Round

The project will consist of two parts. First, before the festival, students will learn about the tradition of Spring Festival and how Chinese people celebrate it. They will make crafts in preparation of the festival, like papercutting, lanterns, and couplets, to decorate the classroom and a Chinese culture bulletin board. They will also learn about Chinese food and practice how to use chopsticks. Then on Chinese New Year, the students and parents will take a field trip by bus to the Chinatown in downtown Chicago. They will have a meal in a Chinese restaurant with chopsticks and then watch a New Year parade. They will take a walk around the zodiac square and visit the stores. After the field trip, the participants will be asked to complete a feedback survey.
