Ms. Johnson’s students learned about Confucius during their Ancient China unit.  Confucius was credited with being China’s first teacher and philosopher.  They learned about his life and how his teachings impacted Chinese culture.  Each student chose one of his well-known sayings that stood out to them, wrote a short paragraph about what it means to them, and then created artistic posters.
