The second graders are just finishing up a unit called Around Town: Neighborhood and Communities. One of the stories takes place in Chinatown.
To complement the unit, the second graders took a bus to Los Angeles' Chinatown! Here are some photos that Bryce's mom and Nate's mom took during the excursion. (ik •skər • shun)
The captions for the photos were written by the second graders! Nice vocabulary and sentence structure, pupils!
Trip to Chinatown on PhotoPeach
After the field trip, Heather brought in traditional Chinese envelopes for everyone with an ornament inside. Each ornament had a different meaning. For example, Mrs. Yollis got one that means wealth.
In addition, Heather brought her Chinese yo yo to share. She is taking yo yo lessons and will soon master this skill!
What was your favorite part about the visit to Chinatown?
