“At least I now know Kuai Ze means chopsticks!” -Shanti
“Doesn’t it mean spoon?”-Tommy
After a good nights rest from all the fun activities from yesterday we had another great breakfast at the hotel and then made our way to Manhui child-care institute. Today was our first day of teaching our lesson plans! We only had a small window of time so we mixed and matched our favorite activities with our teaching partner. From my lesson plan Angelica and I read the zodiac animals book and did the identification and charades activity along with making masks. And in Angelica’s lesson plan we played duck duck goose and the hula hoop game and closed it off with reading a book about sharing. During our time at the school we also played traditional Chinese games outside with the students, which included a game called rolling the hoop and other games we also play in the states like dodge ball and tug of war. After saying goodbye to the students we had an amazing lunch cooked for us by the school chef. We were then brought to the global mall, the biggest mall in the world by square feet. There is even a water park inside! We got to explore for an hour. In that hour Allie and I visited the water park and found an illusion magic art museum where we got to go into tilted rooms and take silly pictures. And at 3pm we loaded onto a bus and headed to our second hotel a little outside of central Chengdu.
So with that, we end our day 3 adventures in Chengdu China.
And for those invested.
Turns out Kuai Ze meant chopsticks all along :) Shanti
