Students can use this activity to learn more about the Chinese Zodiac and Lunar New Year! They can use the example Zodiac to find the animal that represents their birth year and learn about the animal's traits, lucky colors, and possible professions. Then, students can make an "All About Me" incorporating their animal and their own favorite colors, personality traits, hopes, and dreams for the future. When finished, they can share their "All About Me" with the class in an engaging project that combines art, writing, community and learning about other cultures!
