Academy Street Elementary School third-grade students had the chance
to experience different aspects of the Chinese culture when they attended an in-house field trip called "Go China," presented by Patricia Shih.
As part of their social studies curriculum, the students have been engaged in learning about the country, in particular its geography, history and culture, making the hands-on, interactive presentation a fitting complement to their comprehensive study.
During the workshop, the students not only learned about the language,
location and art forms of China, but also had the chance to take a look at Ms. Shih's extensive collection of artifacts, including silk lotus shoes, puppets from a Chinese opera, instruments and clothing.
