Celebrate Chinese New Year with a magnificent dragon parade! Or design this accordion-fold mythical creature to reenact fantasies.
Invite students to search for information and stories about dragons and their role in ancient Chinese culture. Find out which traditions are still celebrated today. When is Chinese New Year celebrated next? What year of the Zodiac is it?
Working in collaborative groups, students will need at least four pieces of construction paper to create a giant dragon.
Draw a huge dragon’s head with Crayola® Twistables™. Fill the paper with its eyes, nose, horns, fire, and other features. If Twistables are not available, Crayola Construction Paper Crayons can be substituted.
With additional paper, students draw the dragon’s immense body. Create colorful scales with Twistables™.
Create a unique dragon tail on still more paper. Will its tail be long, curled, and pointy, or wide and flat?
Design legs and/or wings for the dragon on another sheet.
Cut out all the dragon pieces with Crayola® Scissors. Attach pieces together with Crayola® Glue Sticks.
With Crayola® Ultra-Clean Markers and Crayola® Glitter Glue, accent the dragon’s look. Will it be flashy and friendly or fierce and fiery? Air-dry the glitter glue.
Starting at the tail, fold the dragon back and forth like an accordion. The class is now ready to celebrate Chinese New Year or tell stories of mythical creatures.
