A New Week Starts!

Today’s physical exercise is Chinese hopscotch. In China, the “hopscotch” game began in the Qing Dynasty. It not only can improve children’s ability to jump, run and maintain balance but can also cultivate their sense of unity and collaboration. Let’s take a look at the pictures of energetic kids~

今天的体育活动是跳房子。在中国,“跳房子”游戏始于清代,它不仅能提高儿童跳跃、奔跑和保持身体平衡的能力,还能培养他们团结、协作和锻炼身体的意识。来看看精力充沛的小朋友们的身影吧~

DSC00939DSC00917DSC00878DSC00891DSC00904DSC00875DSC00879DSC00906DSC00923

The activity today is “tiao pi jin”/ Chinese Jump Rope. This exercise is very popular among children in China. “Tiao pi jin” often requires multi-person cooperation, which can enhance the muscle strength of the lower limbs, exercise and increase the jumping power, improve flexibility and coordination. A lot of students in summer camp soon learned how to play “tiao pi jin”. Can you find yourself in the above photos?

今天上午的健身活动是跳皮筋。跳皮筋往往需要多人协作,可以增强下肢肌肉力量,锻炼弹跳力,提高柔韧性和协调性。很多小朋友很快就学会了怎么跳皮筋。小朋友们能在照片中找到自己的身影吗?
