Any ideas to make Ancient China come alive for 6th graders?

We have the students in our school research and present the information about Chinese New Year.

Some Ideas

Eat with chopsticks.

Build a miniature Great Wall.

Make paper lanterns & dragons.

Do a calligraphic scroll using the Chinese alphabet (which I am sure Google could find for you), or make a bracelet with name in Chinese characters.

Learn the Chinese zodiac & write funny horoscopes.

Build & float Chinese junks.

Research & make a diorama of pandas in their natural habitat.

Learn to count to 10 in Chinese & then create a Math problem using the Chinese words.

Have students create dot-to-dot pictures using Chinese numbers; shuffle, have others do & color for display.

Treasure hunt along the Silk Road with Marco Polo...geography & Chinese exports.

I am right in the middle of my Ancient China unit--that is until we started our Christmas break yesterday. We did a cyberhunt that I found on Scholastic. http://teacher.scholastic.com/lessonrepro/reproducibles/instructor/cyberhunt/0301/ancientchina_kids.htm
My 5th graders enjoyed it a lot.

You could make kites using wrapping paper and wooden sticks you can get at any craft place...add some string and have them try out their kites
