After the 7th Grade Chinese students learned the ingredients and tools used, and steps to bake moon cakes, students baked the cakes on September 28, having a great time. We are wrapping up the unit with student-produced baking show, and learning interrogatives to ask and answer questions related to their moon cake baking experience. These interrogatives include who/whom, whose, what, what time, when, why, which, where and how. Being able to initiate questions allows our students to take on a more active role during interpersonal communication. We will move onto the next unit: My House after this. In the new unit, students will learn to describe their house, rooms, household items, directions and daily routines related to their house. For the end of unit project, they will use a PPT presentation, floor plan of their house to describe their house.
