What is the Let's Explore!: Lunar New Year Program?

Panda's Let's Explore!: Lunar New Year program provides an opportunity to teach students about the history and traditions of Lunar New Year. Designed for in-classroom or distance learning, the curriculum is made up of 8 interactive activities that explore the rich traditions of Lunar New Year- like trivia, world exploration, simple Chinese words and phrases, and so much more.

Who can participate?

Any student or youth serving organization. Our program is designed for grades Pre-K through 5th.

Is there a cost to particiate?

Nope! Our Let's Explore!: LNY program is completely free and fun.

Dates & Times

The online curriculum will be available between January 10 to February 23, 2024 for registered partners. During the registration process, we ask for your lesson date so we can share our accompanying Lunar New Year activity booklet and special offers to you and your students. (physical activity booklets are available while supplies last).

Minimum event size?

Our Let's Explore!: LNY program is designed for both large and small class sizes.

Is food provided?

Food will not be included as part of our Let's Explore!: Lunar New Year program. In previous years, we have provided free meals to students as part of the Let's Explore!: Lunar New Year program, however, due to the record high labor shortage, we will not be offering food. In lieu of food, we will be sharing special Lunar New Year offers for students and their families to continue the celebration at home with their Panda favorites. Thank you for your understanding and patience!

2023 - 2024 Registration and Program Dates

Online registration begins November 20, 2023. The online curriculum will be available between January 10, 2024 to February 23, 2024 for registered partners.

Can I request a presentation by the Panda Team?

We will not be offering in-person Panda led presentations for our 2024 program. In lieu of Panda ambassadors, we have created a Teacher's Guide to help educators navigate the topics within the online curriculum for their classroom and special activity booklets (physical booklets available while supplies last) for students as a gift in hopes of inspiring them to continue learning about Lunar New Year exploration at home. Thank you for your understanding!
