Field Trip#5: The New York Historical Society

Greetings Parents, 

Last Friday, we went to the New York Historical Society. We hoped everyone had a great experience in there. IMG_4500IMG_4502

The younger group joined a workshop about the Eloise, a girl who lives in the “room on the tippy-top floor” of the Plaza Hotel in New York City with her Nanny, her pug dog Weenie, and her turtle Skipperdee. The older group joined a workshop to become a detective.

It’s okay if we did not know who Eloise is… we got a chance to listen to her story 🙂

Before we started, the teacher taught us a new way if we would like to show our excitements… Check the Video 🙂 When we feel excited….IMG_4524IMG_4532

Then we had a chance to pick up Eloise’s call, she introduced herself to our buddies!

IMG_4545IMG_4543

Check the video to see what Eloise was talking to them – Hello, I am Eloise 🙂

Moving on, we started our walking tour in the Eloise Gallery, we did few fun activities during the trip.IMG_4554

We did a scavenger hunt! 🙂IMG_4580IMG_4574

Teachers and parents joined the activities too 🙂 They were working so hard! Check the video –  Scavenger Hunting…

Field Trip#4: The Prospect Park Zoo

Greetings Parents, 

Last Friday, we went to the Prospect Park Zoo for our fourth field trip. We were shocked by the thunderstorms happened early in the morning. And thank you for our students’ SUPERPOWER, we arrived the zoo and had our trip with beautiful weather!

IMG_4234

The Prospect Park Zoo is divided mainly into four parts – The Barn, The Animal Lifestyles, the Discovery Trail, and the Sea Lion Court. We first walked to the Barn… 🙂IMG_4230

When we were walking to the Barn, we found something super exciting! We were guessing if this is a real animal?IMG_4187

And here we arrived at the Barn!

IMG_4194IMG_4189

We found many animals living in the Barn, including but not limited to cows 牛, sheep 羊, and pigs 豬, and one of the barn animals that we never learn in the classroom – ALPACA 羊駝!

IMG_4217IMG_4200

We observed the lovely animals first, then we started to feed them! All the students were so excited feeding them!

Look what we found! TORTOISE! 乌龟! Oh, wait, TORTOISESSSSSSSSSSS!!IMG_4255IMG_4253

Check out our video – Feeding Tortoises

The tortoises were all full, we walked to the Animal Styles Area and took a break. Well, Mr. Peacock was on our way though…IMG_4267

We found some fishes and sea animals there.

And we found an animal that we were so familiar with – the Monkeys (猴子).

IMG_4277IMG_4275

Field Trip#3: The Museum of Chinese in America (MOCA)

Greeting Parents,
Last Friday, we went to The Museum of Chinese in America (MOCA) for our third field trip. Everyone had great fun in the MOCA!

IMG_3877IMG_3875

We were waiting at the lobby before we started our workshop, everyone was so curious and walked around the lobby. Our younger ones waited patiently until the presenter came.

IMG_3884IMG_3887IMG_3880

The presenter, Ms. Dianne, gathered everyone up and brought us to the classroom. She gave a brief introduction to the students before the walking tour. 

IMG_3898IMG_3899IMG_3904IMG_3917IMG_3916

And the journey started 🙂IMG_3927

The tour introduced many Chinese traditional cultures to the students, they were so excited and participated a lot in the discussion. 

First of all, the language 🙂IMG_3936IMG_3943

Moving on… we got to know how the Chinese Lion Dance was designed… 🙂

IMG_3966IMG_3956

Moving on again… we checked how the Chinese shops operated in the Chinatown a hundred years ago…

IMG_3967IMG_3975

Most importantly! The food cultures!

IMG_4030IMG_4015

The presentation was absolutely fantastic!!
