Winter Camp 2019
Dec 23rd - Dec 27th
【Let's go over World Winter Holiday Celebration ! 】
As winter holiday is coming, we would like to learn about other countries’ culture through their unique style of winter celebrations. For Christmas, some countries don't use Santa Claus as a Christmas symbol, instead they use Saint.Niclas. Some countries celebrate Christmas in summer. WHY? Through learning about how other countries celebrate Christmas, we can learn many new aspects of the world. This is project learning based on the IB program and the Reggio approach.
The purpose of the camp is not simply learning facts about other countries, but rather developing respect for different cultures. Each day, we focus on one country or region to investigate the country’s culture and history.
At the end of the day, we introduce famous artists of the country and have the children explore art materials to create like the professional artists!
