Chinese calligraphy potatoes

Our story of the world lesson on Chinese writing as it transitioned from pictograph to calligraphy. We chose a character and carved it out of half a potato.  Bottom line: we are very grateful for our printer!

Here we have tree, mountain, and fire

The characters for tree, mountain and fire are the same kanji in Japan. Japanese borrowed much from China.
