Dragons & Dynasties: Discovering Ancient China

We just finished 2 of our 3 summer mini-camps about Ancient China! The kids in these camps have enjoyed activites, crafts and games which taught them about aspects of life in Ancient China. By far, the most popular activity was the Dragon Parade which we took through the Museum's galleries as a demonstration of New Year's celebrations. Not far behind was kite making and flying - because the kite was invented in China, along with several other items like dominoes, sunglasses, bells, and much more!

These kids are great cooks as well! We made fried rice one day and learned to use chop sticks! (Its was pretty hard!) We learned about the Great Wall of China and re-built it out of recycled materials!
We would like to extend a big thanks to the Oyster House in Charlottesville, VA for showing some Chinese antiques to the children and explaining all about them!

Here are some pictures of children enjoying this awesome summer camp!
