Children of Hangzhou: Connecting with China (Chinese (Mandarin)/English)
Author: Boston Children's Museum
Country/Culture: China
Language: Chinese (Mandarin), English
Type of Product: DVD
Item Number: V1308W
Retail Price: $29.95
ISBN Number: 9780887277634
Description: Join four teens from Hangzhou, China—Doudou, Weicheng, Gangzheng, and Qianyun—and gain insight into Chinese daily life. China is in the news every day, but not in a way that gives Westerners a true sense of the different facets of Chinese people's lives. Through these four video diaries, viewers will experience a school day, visit the countryside, see the training of an opera student, and share in a birthday celebration. Related enrichment activities will help viewers connect with China by trying out the favorite games and activities of their Chinese peers, whether it's learning how to play a sport or making a traditional craft.

* Video diaries in English and Mandarin, ideal for language learning or cultural studies
* Interactive maps of China and the world, with related discussion questions
* Cultural activities such as a dance opera demonstration, an abacus lesson, and a Chinese shuttlecock-making demonstration
* Chinese vocabulary lists and pronunciation guide

Originally created by educators at the Boston Children’s Museum as an accompaniment to an exhibit, this DVD-ROM can be used in the classroom or in the home.

Note: All features aside from video diaries themselves must be accessed via computer. Video diaries can be played on any standard DVD player.

System Requirements: DVD-ROM drive, Adobe Flash Player 10
