Chinese New Year is February 16, 2018! It is the Year of the Dog.
For this activity, the students solve 20 addition problems. Then, they determine if the answer is greater than or less than 10. They use their answers to color a Chinese New Year picture. The picture is the word "dog" written in Chinese because it is the Year of the Dog. The students will love solving math problems in order to color the picture correctly. Also, they will be excited about writing a word in Chinese.
In addition to the math coloring picture, I have included a handout to read with the students that tells a little bit about Chinese New Year.
