We love field trips. Today, we walked through a hot, humid day to train it to the Hamagin Science Center in Yokohama. It’s a great hands-on museum all about science and space. As we are studying scientific discoveries and have been making our own discoveries as part of our unit, the museum is perfect.
Picture students playing, testing, experimenting. Signs are posted in English and Japanese. There’s room to be loud, to laugh, to make mistakes and to discover.
What is best about field trips is figuring things out–outside the classroom.
Here’s just one of the exchanges that happened today at the museum. More to follow.
