Children’s China: Celebrating Culture, Character and Confucius
Kohl Children's Museum
2100 Patriot Blvd.
Glenview, IL 60026
This interactive exhibit explores what life is like for children in China. Kids will celebrate the annual holiday, National Teachers' Day, while learning to write “thank you teacher” in Chinese characters on a touchscreen notepad. Kids will shop in a traditional Chinese neighborhood market and then prepare a healthy meal while working in a restaurant. In the home, visitors will learn how families celebrate the Chinese New Year and participate in a daily dragon parade led by a traditional dragon headdress. Computer interactives invite children to experience the art of paper cutting, discover their lunar calendar animal and play traditional musical instruments. A key focus of the exhibit will be Confucius, the inspirational teacher and moral leader still considered to be a hero to children in China today.
