Happy Chinese New Year!

When children expand their cultural awareness, they gain a better understanding of the world around them. Expanding cultural awareness can also help children gain a sense of community. This week at the Academy of Powell Place, we expanded our sense of cultural awareness while learning about Chinese New Year! The children had the chance to eat pot stickers for lunch and learn about China's rich culture and traditions! Below are some facts about Chinese New Year and some ideas to celebrate at home!
