This Chinese New Year Freebie contains two different things. It has a comprehension passage with questions about the 12 Chinese animals and the legend of how they came to represent each year in the Chinese New Year 12 year cycle (and a key).
It also has a yearly chart has a complete list of all 12 animals and their special years. You can use this as a reference to see which animal it will be for the New Year, or you can use it for a charts and graphs activity with your students.
This Chinese Legend and Chart Freebie are part of my very complete 64 page Chinese New Year for Older Kids Unit.
