Explore Chinese New Year with a creative and fun coloring page and dot-to-dot number activity page featuring Lexi the Mouse as he journeys through China. Use this page to teach your students about the Dragon Dance and expose them to Chinese numbers at the same time. The Dragon Dance is an integral part of the Chinese New Year traditions. Every Chinese New Year Parade ends with a Dragon Dance.
Chinese dragons are a symbol of China - representing wisdom, power, and wealth. The Dragon Dance is meant to scare away evil spirits and bring in good luck for the New Year. A group of dancers make a long flexible dragon undulate by using poles positioned under the dragon.
Included in this free pack is an introduction to Chinese numbers and ideas about how you can explore Chinese culture and numbers with your students.
