Chinese New Year Podcast Playlist

Create engaging audio recordings of stories or poems that demonstrate fluid reading at an understandable pace; add visual displays when appropriate to emphasize or enhance certain facts or details.

Essential Questions:
 * How can you use language to inform others on a specific topic?
 * What can we learn about a culture through its art forms and customs?

This integrated ELA and Social Studies Playlist introduces students to the traditions surrounding the 15-day Chinese New Year celebration. As students learn about the Chinese New Year they will also learn about how to write and present expository writing. Students will apply these skills to create a podcast on the Chinese New year.

Students in younger grades may want to work together on a topic, while older student may work independently. Tailor this Playlist to your classroom!
