We are going to learn about the different ways Chinese New Year is celebrated and think about how it is similar and different to how we celebrate New Years Eve at the end of December.

 

Start by watching the videos, then try writing about some of the traditions of Chinese New Year using the worksheets or make your own decorations to hang up around your house.
