This is a complete ELA activity packet for the Chinese folk tale "Two of Everything". It is meant to be used with Journeys Grade 2 Unit 6 Lesson 29. However, you may use the resource with the original story. You may also use it as a mini unit on Chinese fairy tales, folk tales, and fables with the included bonus stories and activities. I used it to celebrate Chinese New Year.
Please note the 2014 version of Journeys will replace Lesson 28 "Working in Space" with the story of "Yeh Shen". All other objectives will remain the same.
So this packet can be used in TWO units in the future. I will add the 2014 vocabulary information for the new unit.
