ACTIVITY IDEAS from the LitWits experience:

From the LitWits experience of DRAGONWINGS by Laurence YepWhile nibbling, smelling, watching, and touching things “straight out of the story,” we learned SO much about the history of the Chinese in America, as well as the 1906 San Francisco earthquake. We also experienced this story’s theme of “rising above” by creating kites of rice paper and bamboo, designing our own airplanes, nibbling on crosscultural fare, writing to our “superiors” and so much more!
