Today we went on our second field trip, this time to the Water Science Museum. We rode the bus and the train to get to the museum, and once there, we broke into separate grade 1 and grade 2 groups. Grade 1 students learned about where the tap water in Kumamoto comes from. These activities tied in nicely to our TDL curriculum on pollution and natural resources, and the children could see first-hand what actually happens to dirty water and what the consequences of irresponsible water use are in our daily lives.
We were also able to enjoy a picnic outside (it didn’t rain, luckily!) and some delicious water that was gifted to us by the museum. All in all, a great day full of fun, learning, and new experiences!
