My subject was World Discovery. The first thoughts that came to my mind was geography and cultures. Certainly we did some exploring of these topics, but was more of a hodgepodge of topics.
- Continent and Country Unit (you could imagine the excitement)
- Egypt Unit (played a game of mummy wrapping with toilet paper...the kids liked it)
- Rainforest Unit (Got the powerpoint running and at the end there was a PPT quiz game)
- Solar System (used the PPT and the kids assembled a solar system mobile)
After Class / Extracurricular Activities:
Not surprisingly the kids had brought their cell phones with them, and so occupied themselves with games in between the classes. By the end of the week not many students had working phones left.
At one point during the middle of the week the supervisors brought in this cooking equipment. It was a device meant to cook a Korean treat called:Bungeo-ppang ("goldfish-bread")
The students were given a scavenger hunt game to play, and the reward was tickets to get some bungeo-ppang. Afterwards they lined up to receive their reward.
Other activities included sports.
And making snowflakes.
They saved the best for last because on the final night they put all the kids into the gym and had a noraebang (Korea's version of karaoke). It wasn't all fun in games, but a competition between all the 5 groups. Class 1 (the highest level of English skill and had the cutest girls in it) won the competition.
Don't take my word for it! Instead just watch this video, which includes the singing:
Before we left camp it was goodbye time. The kids gathered in the gym to stand near each other for one last final picture of everyone.
I was sad to go home because the place was so comfortable and there were English speaking people to talk to. I guess I also felt like I would miss the kids. But life has to go on and so we all got on the bus. On the way I spotted this factory near the shore. Ah...lovely~
