Learning Mandarin at East Lake

The third grade students of East Lake School had the opportunity to learn about Chinese culture. Ms. Fan's Mandarin students from Berner Middle School visited East Lake to share their knowledge. The East Lake third graders are presently immersed in a Social Studies unit on China. The Mandarin students presented activities which included vocabulary, information about Chinese New Year, making an origami animal for the Year of the Rat, and taught the students how to hold and use chopsticks. The children played a chopstick challenge and listened to Chinese music. The visit was a great success.
