Recently, as part of our first theme in reading, we read "The Ballad of Mulan," an exciting legend from China. Mulan was a brave young girl who became a great Chinese hero by taking the place of her old, frail father in a war against invaders.
During our studies of the Mulan legend, we learned to read and write several Chinese characters, which are symbols that represent words.
We used the Chinese characters we learned to create our own stories. Then we illustrated our stories and read them to each other in class. Please enjoy the photographs of our stories below.
Please leave a comment letting us know what you enjoyed about our stories. Do you know other Chinese characters or facts about China that we could learn? Perhaps you could even teach us a word or two in another language!
