23 Wonderful Sites to Teach Children About the Chinese New Year

Friday, January 31, 2014 marks the beginning of the Year of the Horse for the Chinese New Year. According to the site China Highlights, those born under this Chinese zodiac sign "are extremely animated, active and energetic. Horses love to be in a crowd, and they can usually be seen in such occasions as concerts, theaters, meetings, sporting occasions, and parties."  When I was in elementary school in New York City, our class made a trip to Chinatown to watch the Chinese New Year celebration. Complete with firecrackers and a large dragon,  the parade marched up and down the streets. It was exciting, and at times a little scary for this then second grader.
