Students in Mrs. Elliott’s sixth-grade class delivered red envelopes to every student in the school for the Chinese New Year. Red envelopes always contain money in China, and are given mostly to kids. Chinese people regard red as the symbol of energy, happiness, and good luck. Giving red envelopes is a way to send good wishes and luck. Thanks for sharing this tradition with us.
Students were given 100 index cards and 100 cm of tape. They had to use these items to build a tower in 30 minutes. The tower that could hold the most weight won. We also had a 100 piece puzzle challenge. The group that could finish the puzzle the quickest won a prize. The students then wrote autobiographies about themselves, from the ages of 1 to 100. They had to make up some of the information for later on in their life. It's funny to see the things the students wrote. They were also given a picture of themselves that have been aged to make them look older.
