Last Friday, we went to the New York Transit Museum for our second field trip. The topic for this year was “Welcome to the Maker Station.” The tour started with performance, followed by the train walking tour. In the end, we went to the learning center to discover how trains work scientifically through various learning stations.
Group pictures of the day 🙂
The tour started with a performance given by the tutors. The performance introduced on how to find a solution when we found problems traveling in the busy and crowded city.
The walking tour was divided into two groups, we walked around the platform and looked at multiple trains from the past.
We checked for the engine of the train, and the engine was as heavy as two elephants! We tried to push and pull to see if we could move it around!
We gathered again and shared what we have found and observed in the learning center.
Then we started exploring how the trains run in scientific ways.
We had great fun at the Transit Museum, looking forward to the upcoming field trips!
The first session of our summer camp has passed in the blink of an eye. Congratulations to all the students who accomplished session one, way to go!
Our 4-6 beginner/ Intermediate class focused on learning weekend activities last week, they also learned about the directions and places around the community.
We also learned various ingredients when we order a pizza! Becuase pizza is so popular in the New York City.
We learned about the transportations in the city and got ourselves prepared for the field trip.
Our 4-6 advanced class learned how to identify places and people in their community, students, could explain how often and the purpose of going to some locations in the community. Most importantly, they learned how to report an emergency that happens around them.
Our 7-14 class learned how to describe the community, and compare the community in the New York City and Beijing.
We gave out certificates to students who came to session one only, students receive certificates on their last day of class.
Group pictures for the classes 🙂
Our afternoon workshops invited the Gong Music for a workshop introducing Chinese musical instrument. Their presenter introduced Pipa in the first session.
Two more Chinese musical instrument workshops are coming in session 2 and 3!
See you next week!
Our first week has been quite exciting, we have read stories, done science projects, and created some very fun artwork.
On Friday July 14th we went on an Applebee’s Kitchen Tour. We visited an Applebee’s in Brooklyn and they showed us around before giving us lunch.
We learned the rules for the kitchen, including a tour of the walk-in freezer… Brrrrrrr.
We had a fun time in the kitchen, and even more fun getting to know each other over lunch.
Stay tuned for next week when we visit the transit museum!
