Yew Chung International school is a bilingual - English & Mandarin Chinese - school located in Mountain View, CA. We are a K-5 school currently looking to expand to middle school. Our student population comes from diverse backgrounds of not only Asian, but European, Russian, & Persian (to name a few). We have several other YCIS campuses around the world (Beijing, Shang ai, Qing Dao, & Hong Kong).
We thought to utilize this community event as a means to make connections between Social Studies, Science and the Earth... and so our theme was "Animals Around the World". Our K-2 classes created the animal ornaments and the ribbon is labeled in English and Chinese (Animals Around the World). They had a blast learning and drawing those animals that are indigenous to those regions.
