Chinese Culture Lesson

During this Chinese culture lesson students learned a little about Chinese opera and the symbolism of colors in costumes and facial painting. Following the presentation students worked on coloring their own Chinese opera masks. I would love to have a presentation on Chinese opera in our school. I can just see our students getting excited about learning all the amazing acrobatics and sword fights that are a huge part of Chinese opera.
