Top 10 Moon Festival Sites

Hello, everyone!  Moon Festival is very near (September 22 this 2010), and our teacher-friends here at ChildBook may be starting on discussing the Chinese Moon Festival in their classes.

Besides our Moon Festival lesson plan, worksheets, powerpoint and coloring pictures, the ChildBook staff have put in their favorite sites about the Moon Festival.  We wanted you to have a ready-made list of sites about this Chinese festival so that it will be easier for you to plan your lessons.
