We didn't get to do much to celebrate Chinese new year this year, but we did go to the Portland Chinese garden last month (January) for a field trip! I bet this place would be gorgeous in the Spring too, although it was very beautiful still even in the middle of Winter.
At the time of this field trip we were also doing a little rock nature study, so we were looking at all the many things that were made of rock. There was much to find made out of rocks. There were bridges, buildings, statues, and even natural rock formations. The ground had some pretty rock walkways also. It tied in so perfectly with our nature study, love it when that happens!
