Day 3 of 2nd Session (India, Japan, Indonesia)
We started the day with a game of 7 stones (a common game Indian children play). Then we put on a play of Rama and the Demon King (based on Ramayana) and visited the Ganges River during Diwali where we did Henna. Then we looked at some traditional Japanese watercolor paintings and made one of our own...which included kanji (a type of Japanese writing) for the nature element they chose (rainbow, rain, fire, tree, or sky), kanji for "person", their name and then age in kanji. Afterwards, we played the Japanese game Kagome Kagome. Then we went to the Ring of Fire and explored how volcanoes form, the theory of plate tectonics, inner layers of earth and what makes volcanoes explode. Then we labeled the parts of the volcano and watched a demonstration of an explosion with baking soda and vinegar. We also went on a hike to the creek and made some Indian Rangoli Art.
