Chinese Handprint dragon

Great idea for any Chinese New Year display work you have planned. As part of our Geography project each week we are looking at a different aspect of Chinese culture. This week we made two dragons, a giant dragon body (which is yet to have a head) which I will post a picture of soon, and a great little hand print dragon for a display, which has drawn a lot of attention on the corridor!

My students loved it because it was messy and very tactile but at the same time we were able to think about what a dragons body may be like, it could have scales which are represented by the hand prints and we chose colours at represented china by looking at a range of different artifacts. I then crafted a head for the display.

Not a bad job I wouldn't say!
