China Box

China Box is a tool that teachers can use to introduce students to Chinese language and culture. We obtained the artifacts in the box during two trips to different parts of China. Through these cultural objects, students can see, feel, and experience Chinese culture. The items are divided into four categories:

Each guide describes the items in the box and suggests classroom activities.

We appreciate your comments and feedback on our China Box. When you return the box, please tell us how you used the items in your classroom and the outcome of your lessons. If you develop lesson plans based on the materials in the box and would like to share them with other teachers, please include them when you return the box so we can make them a resource for other teachers.
