This product was really well beneath the level of my 5th grader and I doubt she would have enjoyed doing it last year either. There is no text in it to speak of, and no reference reading or external bibliographic sources for the child to reference. When doing a special holiday lapbook unit, there is a least SOME reading material for the child to go along with all of the activities. In a unit study, I generally see more, i.e., book references, source material references ect. Decoding games and word searches along with fill-in-the blanks are all well in good, but if the child is just doing good guess work on the answers based on a word bank, are they really learning anything about China or the holiday? I certainly was having a hard time gleaning any usable information out of the myriad worksheets. Also, there is Wordsearch 1, 2, 3, 4, & 5. Are they leveled? Each puzzle is like that and they are all different with different words. Are we supposed to do all of the them? More than one wordsearch is a bit redundant. Was there some sort of order to these sheets? There was nothing more than a copywrite and I really did not understand why the Bingo? I mean other than having the Chinese kids clipart, it really did not go. Also, they were addition, subtraction Bingo games - this is not properly leveled for the grade it was advertised for even for public school. A few sheets might be kinda fun if you have another unit in place already but I would hardly call it comprehensive and I wouldn't pay $10 for it.
