Chinese Zodiac

This worksheet introduces the Chinese "Zodiac". Sts find out about the original buddhist legend, the 12 signs (a great way to review or discover animals), which one is theirs (not everything is up to date but you can edit so that it fits) and the personality attached to each sign. You can do it around Chinese New Year, or with any lesson on personality or legends. As a follow-up, there's a listening activity in which I read my version of the tale. The script is on the last page but you can change it to your favorite version. I also use this tale with younger kids, with props to help them understand. You can record it if you don't feel comfortable telling a story to a whole class, or read it, or tell it for a little story time... Or even have ss enact it. It all depends on how you work and the kind of ss you're facing!
