Treasure Chest Teaches About China

Treasure Chest Teaches About China

As part of a collaboration among third-grade teachers, school library media specialist Ms. Olsen and art teacher Ms. Whitney, third-graders at Belmont learned about China and its culture through the Journey’s Discovery Treasure Chest.

With museum artifacts set up in the school’s library, students had the opportunity to explore China through various activities, including studying silks and hand-painted items, and connecting what they have learned about Chinese inventions to actual artifacts in the chest. Ms. Whitney also displayed Chinese New Year Rooster projects, which students completed in art class, as a backdrop to the event.
