Lesson 2

This Friday – February 12th - is Chinese New Year. It is a very special occasion when people in China and around the world celebrate with food, presents and family.


As part of the traditions of New Year, people share a special story about animals. It is called the Chinese Zodiac Story.


Today’s Task

Your job is to look at the eBook below and read, or ask a grown-up to read, the story.


Talk with your grown-up about what happens and then write down a list of the animals in the correct order, depending on which year of the zodiac they were given by the Jade Emperor.


Draw and colour a picture of your favourite zodiac animal.
