Did you know that if you know how to draw, you are ready to write Chinese calligraphy? Thanks to a workshop before the Easter holidays, the students were excited to learn that they already knew how to write Chinese calligraphy.

During this unit, the CP class learned about writing and numerical systems worldwide and throughout time. To receive hands-on experience, they received a visit from a professional Chinese calligrapher.

She taught the students different characters and allowed them to practice their skills. It was beautiful to hear the students exchange with the teacher, mentioning their hypotheses about why the ancient Chinese developed this form of written communication.

I am proud of my pupils because they clearly understood the unit’s central idea: Humans created writing and numeral systems to understand and organize themselves better.
