Word sort activity using Chinese loan words "borrowed" from Chinese.
This activity provides Chinese students with an opportunity to build on their background knowledge about the Chinese language during the first week of school or with a substitute teacher. This activity could also be used at any time during the year or in an English/Language Arts classroom to develop English vocabulary (because all the words are also used in English) or a Social Studies/History unit on China.
Pages include one page of headers, one page of words to sort (39 words total), an answer key, a skeleton lesson plan outline for a substitute, and a how-to page. Cover page and credits/thank-you not included in page count.
