Animals of the Chinese Astrology
Chinese Astrology 1 Animals as Symbols
Explain to the students that they will be learning about how animals
can be used as symbols. Show them the pictures of the animals, birds, and
insects you have collected from books or magazines. Ask the students what
characteristics come to mind when they see each animal. For example, a
bear might seem very powerful, a puppy playful, a deer graceful, and so
forth. Mention a few common similes, such as "busy as a bee," "wise as an
owl," and "sly as a fox." Ask the students to think of other animals that
seem closely connected with descriptive phrases. Write the names of the
animals you have discussed so far on the board, followed by the adjectives
linked with them. Tell the students that the animals are often used as
symbols for particular human traits. Refer to examples you have already
discussed. Tell them that a picture of a bear can simply represent power
or being tough. So it is a symbol for power. A picture of an owl can
represent wisdom. It is a symbol of wisdom. (Of course, in reality, birds
are not particularly wise!) Now go back to the original animal pictures.
As you hold up each one, call upon individual students to name a trait
often associated with it.
Chinese Astrology 2 The 12 Animals of the Chinese Zodiac and How They
Tell the students that animals are used as symbols in the Chinese
calendar. Explain how the calendar is divided into 12-year cycles, each
year being associated with a certain animals. Ask if they have any ideas
of what the animals might be. Remind them that the Chinese would choose
animals that lived in their country and with which they were familiar.
This would eliminate such creatures as giraffes and hippopotami. After the
students have made a few guesses, tell them that the first two in the list
are the rat and the ox and that they are about to learn why this is so.
Then navigate to the EDSITEment-reviewed website The Chinese Zodiac and
read aloud the story of how the 12 zodiac animals were chosen. Explain
that this is one of many versions of this particular tale of origins.
Remind the students of the warm-up, mentioning that animals are often
used as symbols. Write the names of rat, cat, and ox on the chalkboard (or
whiteboard). Then, referring to the story, ask what words (adjectives)
could be used to describe each of these three animals. Write them down
after the names of the animals. Have the students explain why they chose
the words they did. For example, the rat is clever because it figured out
how to trick the cat and the ox. Ask what each animal symbolizes. After
the answers are given, tell the students that in the next Chinese
Astrology they will learn about the other 10 animals of the Chinese
Chinese Astrology 3 What do the Zodiac Animals Symbolize?
Hand out the copies of the pictures of the zodiac animals from Twilight
Zone's Chinese Horoscope and the horoscope chart from Chinese Horoscope
Signs and Their Corresponding Years. Use the animal names on top of the
chart to identify the zodiac creatures in the picture. Explain that, like
the cat, rat, and ox, each of these animals is a symbol. Brainstorm with
the students until they can come up with several adjectives to describe
each of the 12 animals in the picture. Now hand out copies of the chart
(provided in pdf format). Write the three categories on the board as well.
Have the students write down one positive and negative trait for each
animal listed on their charts. Do the same on your chart on the board.
Now look up the traditional descriptions of the zodiac animals. Begin
at the Chinese Zodiac available through EDSITEment-reviewed Asia Source.
Click on "Haskell by the Month," then on "February," then on "Chinese New
Year." Call upon different students to read aloud the description of each
animal. Discuss these descriptions. Note the comical images of the
animals. Now go to "Chinese Astrology: An Ancient viewpoint on temperament
and personality". Click "What is Chinese Astrology?" Then click "Zodiac
Sign Beanie Babies." Discuss the descriptions of the animals with the
students. Ask them if they think the traits assigned to them seem
appropriate or not. Click on each picture as you progress to make the
figure larger. Now go to Go to the "Chinese Astrology" page at. Click on
the specific animals. Read aloud the excerpts you have previously
selected. Have the students look closely at the photographs of the
animals. Point out that the 12 animals are portrayed somewhat differently
at each of the three websites visited so far during this Chinese
Astrology. (They're comical in the first, soft and cuddly in the second,
and realistic in the third.) Ask the students which type of pictures they
prefer and why. Draw their attention to the Chinese character, which
represents the name of the animal at the end of each description. Explain
that Chinese writing is very different than our own. Now go to Zodiac
Fortunes and have different students read aloud this final group of
Comment upon the similarities of the various descriptions that have
been read as well as the differences. Then return to the chart you started
at the beginning of the Chinese Astrology. Have the students suggest which
traits (positive and negative) should be added. When this task is done,
call upon different students to read aloud the information about each
zodiac animal as it has been defined by the class.
Now have the students compare and contrast the characteristics of the
animals on the list. For example, ask them which animals seem the most
athletic, which seem more thoughtful or imaginative. Ask them if all the
animals are real. (Only the dragon is not.) Try arranging the animals in
groups according to whether they are farm animals, wild animals, or
animals you might have at home. Some, such as the rat and rabbit, would
fit into more than one category. Ask if there are other ways the animals
can be compared. When you finish this activity, tell the students to keep
their charts in a safe place for the next Chinese Astrology.
Chinese Astrology 4 What Sign Are You?
Review the chart made in Chinese Astrology 3. Then tell the students
that they will learn more about the animal linked with the year of their
birth. There will most likely be two animals represented in the class,
given the span of birth dates. Consult the Chinese horoscope chart
downloaded from "Twilight Zone's Chinese Horoscope" to determine which
animals apply. Click on those animals. Call on students (born in the
appropriate year) to read the descriptions aloud. Discuss how these traits
do or don't apply to members of the class. Ask for examples, i.e., someone
might described as creative, someone else as talkative. Remind the
students that all people have many facets to their personalities. Remind
the students that astrology is not a science but rather an amusing
pastime, and that the interest in the animals of the zodiac adds another
dimension to Chinese culture. Return to the sites visited in Chinese
Astrology 3 and read again about the animal(s) associated with your class.
Continue the discussion of how these traits do or don't seem appropriate.
Now that the students are well versed in the traits associated with
their zodiac animal, have them make acrostics on large sheets of paper.
Ask them to write the letters of their first names with bright markers in
a column from the top to the bottom of a sheet of paper. Then have them
write several adjectives or descriptive phrases after each letter. The
adjective or the first word of the phrase must start with that letter.
Examples of possible descriptions include the following: Loves to draw,
Never gives up, A good friend, Extremely strong, etc. Students might also
include a small drawing of their zodiac animal in one corner of the paper.
When the acrostics are completed, you can display them on a bulletin
