Here we are with our Futabakai Japanese School friends as we started our exchange day at Thomas on Tuesday. In December, we will visit our new friends at their school. After we gave them a tour of our school, we used googledocs to make Venn diagrams of our names and things we have in common. We also used google translator to ask and answer questions in English and Japanese. Below are pictures of us working together on our laptops.

Here's Katherine's finished Venn diagram.
During lunch in the Commons, we enjoyed comparing the foods we brought from home
and getting to know each other better.
Next, we went to the art room and painted our clay medallions that we made for ourselves and our Futabakai partners. After we decorated our medallions, we got to choose stations such as origami, watercolors, and scratch art.
Here's a regular and a crazy picture of us with our finished medallions!
Our last activity was PE. We went to the small gym with Ms. Renno and rotated through different stations: scooter races, juggling, volleyball, and knockout.
Thanks to Mr. Juskiewicz, Mr. Damico, and Ms. Renno
for helping us plan all of these fun activities!
We had a GREAT day and can't wait to see our Futabakai friends again in December!!!
