Game Package, China theme
Five beautiful games about the theme ‘China’ in which many literacy and numeracy goals are incorporated.
What a beautiful country is China. A country with its own traditions, many different communities, beautiful clothes and distinctive customs. Plenty of reasons, therefore, to work with children on the theme ‘China’!
In line with the theme ‘China’ I created these games. They are fun games to play in class. Many different goals on numeracy and literacy are incorporated in this package of games.
Play the dragon boat race, search for the panda bears, make sure you have the longest Chinese lantern, put the Chinese from short to long and ensure you obtain all letters to create the word ‘China’.
You can play this game during class but you can also use these games in the math center or litheracy center.
Enjoy this package.
