Chinese & China Lesson Plans and other Educational Materials

I stumbled across Lesson Plans for the following books and I have included them in the description. Many of them are done as part of a unit on Chinese Culture. Chang's Paper Pony, a very cute story, can be done as part of a unit on the Gold Rush.

The lesson plans range from ancient China, such as The Lost Horse : A Chinese Folktale by Ed Young to the Gold Rush, Chang's Paper Pony, to literature with Lon Po Po A Red Riding Hood Story from China by Ed Young that has a lot of activities for comparison to the European version of Red Riding Hood to the modern immigrant experience in Yang the Third and the impossible family and I Hate English by Ellen Levine to everyday culture in a cute book Dim Sum For Everyone! by Grace Lin. There is a cute scene in Yang the Third and the impossible family (may be the other Yang book, Yang the Youngest and His Terrible Ear by Lensey Namioka ) where the family who just immigrated to Seatle Washington from China, goes to a Chinese Restaurant and discovers fortune cookies.
