Prior to becoming a third grade teacher, I was a pen & ink illustrator, designing detailed greeting cards for international companies. Now that I am in the classroom, I create art for a smaller audience. This is a set of 12 different animals of the Chinese zodiac and its 12-year cycle. Many believe that people born in a certain year take on characteristics of their particular animal. These black and white high-resolution PDF animals include:
Horse: The Year of the Horse began January 31, 2014 and lasted to February 17, 2015.
Sheep: The Year of the Sheep began February 18, 2015 and lasted to February 7, 2016.
Monkey: The Year of the Monkey began February 8, 2016 and lasted to February 27, 2017.
