Exhibition is a special unit designed and executed by the students themselves.This Exhibition is truly unique to our school because we connect it to the 5th grade Capstone academic trips abroad. Before students left, they designed questionnaires on their topic of interest to gather data in their host countries. This year, our Exhibition topic is "population".
During this learning trip we visited different-sized cities like Chitose city(90,000), Otaru (130,000), Hakodate (280,000), and Sapporo (1.9million) in Hokkaido. We learned what the population is like (form), how population influence to the environment (connection), and how population has changed (change).
Since we have a small class size, we could visit the places where I've never been, or I haven't been for a long time. Thus, it is kind of a learning adventure for me, too!
The students are here to learn, and pay close attention to everything that they experience.
By the end of the trip, we'll be prepared for our Exhibition in April.
