The Story of QuYuan – The History Behind the Dragon Boat Festival

I’m happy to present a shadow puppet video that tells the story behind the Dragon Boat Festival in a fun way that kids will like! The benefit of listening to short bilingual videos are many-fold. If your kids are just beginners, it is a good way to expose them to how the language sounds. If they are more advanced, they can start to pick out words or phrases that was mirrored in their first language. If they are fluent, they can practice retelling the story in both languages. I hope whatever your level, you and your family can enjoy this simple explanation to a beloved Chinese holiday.

If you would like more ways to celebrate the Dragon Boat Festival, Tiny Chinese Homeschool has released fun videos and activities for the whole month of June that you can explore.

Here is a recap of what we have done:

Happy Learning!
