Forest Avenue School recently held its 2nd annual China Culture and Market Event. Fifty Mandarin students from Verona High School along with 30 Mandarin Club students from H.B. Whitehorne Middle School led the elementary school students in games and cultural events.
Forest Avenue fourth graders, who have studied Mandarin since the first grade, performed a skit in Mandarin entitled, “Little Tadpoles Look for their Mother”. The event gave students an opportunity to engage in meaningful conversations in Mandarin and learn about different aspects of Chinese life and culture by participating in traditional activities including Chinese Yo Yo and Hacky Sack as well as origami and calligraphy.
