Chengdu 2 School Days

February 24, 2011

Today we spent a full day in school, visiting classes, answering a multitude of questions, and learning more about Chinese culture.  The kids relived their early school days with recess after lunch as everyone headed for the playground….more hoops!  Paper folding and paper cutting lessons were followed by a friendly competition with a group of students in a special global awareness program.  We won’t give you the final score, but in a Jeopardy-like game of knowledge, the Huskies came out ahead (way ahead!).  This included a math segment where we built an insurmountable lead.  By the time we reached the final question, where we were unable to sing the Chinese national anthem, our victory was already soundly in hand.  A fun and educational day.  Tomorrow we head into the city to visit the largest Taoist temple in the region.

    Steve – Randy wanted me to pass on some trivia to you to share with your new friends:
    Basketball was invented in Springfield Massachusetts by a PE teacher in 1891. He wanted to create an indoor game that could be played between football and baseball seasons. Have fun!
