Day two was busy with many fun activities. Like yesterday, the children were separated into three groups.
|10:30||English / Japanese Work Book|
|11:10||Science (Underwater Candle / Swimming Alphabets)|
|12:40||Activity (Watermelon Splitting!)|
English / Japanese Workbook
After attendance, we had a study session again. The English speaking students did Japanese workbooks, and the Japanese speaking students did English workbooks. We also had flashcard activities in each group.
Next was our Science experiments! First, the teachers stood a lit candle in a tray with a bit of colored water. Then they placed a glass bottle over the candle. The flame died out and some of the water was pulled up into the bottle! The experiment was a success! Everyone was curious and had good experience while learning.
For our next experiment we divided into groups and attempted to draw a picture on the water. Children used whiteboard markers to write letters and draw shapes onto strips of plastic. With care, we were able to make the ink rise off the plastic, and float, intact, on the surface of the water. It was challenging but also a big success!
いただきます！ Let's eat! 🙂
Today's outdoor activity was "Watermelon Splitting!", which is a traditional Japanese summer game. Children took turns trying to smash a watermelon while blindfolded. For some children, it was their first time playing this game! Everyone enjoyed it a lot. After splitting the watermelon, of course, we also brought some delicious watermelon to eat together.
