Chinese Lion and Steel Drum


 My object is called a Chinese lion. A Chinese lion is an an animal that scares bad spirits. The object is from China because it is a belief from China. This object belongs to my mom because she brought it from China. My second object is a steel drum. My steel drum is from the West Indies. Some of my dad’s family lives there. The drum has notes that makes different sounds. I tried it at school and the sound was  soft. 

Place(s): New York, China, West Indies
