Celebrating Dragon Boat Festival

Celebrating Dragon Boat Festival

In the Hongqiao lower school department of Shanghai Community International School, the students celebrated this traditional festival by discussing the origins and by creating handcrafted artwork.

The students’ curiosity flourished through various questions: “Who is Qu Yuan?” “Why do Chinese people celebrated the Dragon Boat Festival?” and “Why do they race on dragon boats and eat Zongzi?”.

The hands-on learning through stories and practical work made the whole learning experience and celebration of the national holiday more fun than ever before.
