Children's China: Celebrating Culture, Character & Confucius

Children's China

Kindergarten – Grade 5
Available February 24 through May21, 2015

Take your class on a trip to China, no passports required!

The nationally traveling exhibit, Children's China, opens at The Magic House on February 21 just in time to celebrate the Chinese New Year and year-end field trips.

From learning about the importance of conservation in the panda reserve, to exploring tangrams and map skills in a contemporary Chinese classroom, to gaining an understanding of Chinese culture and character through Confucius' teachings, students will challenge their minds as they experience the similarities and differences between children's lives in China and the United States.

Children’s China meets state and national standards in math, language arts and social studies and has a strong focus on character education.

To schedule a field trip to Children's China: Celebrating Culture, Character and Confucius please contact The Magic House Education Department at or call 314.288.2513.

Created by The Magic House in partnership with the Confucius Institute at Webster University and Character Plus, Children’s China is a nationally traveling exhibit designed to increase understanding of the Chinese culture. Plan your trip to China at The Magic House today!
