One World One Sky: Big Bird's Adventure

Elmo and Big Bird live in the United States and Hu Hu Zhu lives far away in China, but they discovered that they still see the same stars at night! The word for star in Chinese is “xing xing” (pronounced sing sing). How many “xing xing” do you see in this sky?

When Elmo and Hu Hu Zhu "travel" to the moon, they discover some basic but surprising scientific facts. For example, they can't fly a kite there because there is no wind. The fuzzy friends then excitedly realize that children like to fly kites in both China and the United States!

Runtime: approximately 24 minutes. Suitable for preK-2.

One World One Sky: Big Bird's Adventure was made possible by the generous donation of the Iris and Rodney Fukui Family through the Imaginarium's Adopt-a-Show sponsorship.
