Chinese New Year is a time of celebration when people eat, drink and make merry. You may know about the fireworks, the dragon dance and lucky money envelopes, but you can have lots of fun with food and create a class display that is all about Chinese cuisine.

Chinese New Year, also known as the Spring Festival, or Lunar New Year, is often studied or celebrated in school. There’s plenty to get out of such a project, from decorating the classroom, to making red good luck envelopes or traditional paper cuts. Why not try something different this year and look at Chinese food?
