2017 is the year of the rooster. Check out these Chinese Horoscopes on National Geographic Kids. What animal are you? Each animal represents different personality traits. Does your birth year animal match your personality? How about your brother's? Sister's? Mother's? Father's? Friends'?


Chinese New Year 2017 celebrates the year of the rooster. Today we looked at Pablo Picasso's famous painting, The Rooster, 1938. What elements of design to you see in the painting? Why do you think he painted this picture? What words would you use to describe this painting? How is this picture different from a real rooster? What title would you give this painting? How well did the artist do on this work? What makes you say that? Try sketching this rooster at home for extra practice.
