This teacher created Chinese New year packet includes an original
teacher written book titled "The Legend of Nian." Nian is the dragon
legended to have come into Chinese villages and eat people until the
people came up with a plan to scare him away with loud noises and
Next the package includes a page of reading comprehension questions.
Then you'll find a math activity where students must solve fractions to
save the Chinese village of Fraction. Please check out the preview. It
contains the entire package in preview mode. The math lesson allows for
differentiated instruction with four fraction levels of the same page in
the package. You could also use these levels for the same student as
the student works more with fractions. Finally, there is a map of the
Village of Fraction that the students will color based on the fraction
sheet--This is fun math!
While not in the package, I suggest that you follow up with an art
activity. Ask students to create a Nian puppet using a small paper bag."
