PYP Celebrates the Moon Festival

PYP Celebrates the Moon Festival

In true transdisciplinary fashion, art, math, and culture combined in PYP last week for a thrilling activity in celebration of the Moon Festival in China.

Grade 3 students deepened their exploration of area and perimeter by creating their own versions of the Jade Rabbit using square units.

Students became illustrators and creators of their own versions of the characters of the Moon Festival Legend. They shared in stories and cross-cultural traditions that incorporated Korea’s celebration traditions for this time of year.

You can see the beginning of the process pictured and the finished products here alongside all the fun activities that helped 3rd graders share in the Moon Festival celebrations.
