To help us understand our Chinese Astrology love match, hereˇ¦s a chart

Water Ox, Rat and Pig
Wood Dragon, Tiger and Rabbit
Fire Sheep, Horse and Snake
Earth Dragon, Rat and Ox
Here are some general characteristics associated with each element:
Earth Element People
Earth element people tend to be faithful, idealistic and ambitious. There
is a kind of dual energy associated with the earth element. On the one hand,
the signs associated with this element want to be treated with a certain
level of importance, but they also desperately want to be treated in a very
loving manner. This can be a bit of a conflict because sometimes you donˇ¦t
think of meshing the two.
Fire Element People
Magnetic and personable, fire element people want to be happy and excited
about life. However, as energetic as they are, there is still a tendency for
them to be a bit hypersensitive, and a tad gossipy.
Water Element People
Imaginative with a tendency to cast a philosophical eye on lifeˇ¦s events,
water element people are clever, scholarly and sometimes secretive. Itˇ¦s not
usual for signs of this element to have multiple professions.
Metal Element People
Metal element people tend to be great with numbers and, generally
speaking, have a very good head for finances. They also love having an
orderly and disciplined life, but not one without balance.
Wood Element People
The wood element is associated with artists, and the people that tote
this element are usually very dedicated to their professional lives. Keeping
busy is extremely important to them. They also enjoy shopping and any kind

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 zodiac.
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 board.
