The Making of Monkey King
A legend from China
Second graders are learning about aspects of culture in their classrooms as part of their Comparing Cultures unit. They are studying the cultures of Mexico and China. As part of this study of cultures, in the library we are sharing famous Chinese folk legends about Sun Wukong, the Monkey King. The students have been making connections with similar monkey characters in American culture, from Curious George to Master Monkey in the Kung Fu Panda movies. We can't wait to see what Monkey King will do next!
