Chinese 2 students showcase their lanterns.

On February 6, 2020, Chinese 2 students learned more about Chinese culture. In particular, Chinese students learn about the lantern festival. The Lantern Festival ends the Chinese New Year, which is on February 8th for the year 2020. Some celebrations include dragon dances, lantern riddles, and eating tangyuan (ball dumplings in soup). To celebrate this event, Chinese students used origami, the art of folding paper, to create paper lanterns and decorate them.
