Learn from Historical Figures 学习名人轶事
We started the unit with stories of historical figures. The children of G2 discussed in group the qualities that these role models had and why they were inherited by generations of Chinese since ancient times.

Though this unit came to an end, we never stop reflecting on ourselves and moving forward.
