The Philippines! A place where you can see the Chocolate Hills (not made of chocolate)! This little country got its name from the king of Spain, Phillip II, when Spain ruled the islands from the 15oos until 1898. Filipinos eat a lot of rice and fish. For snack, we ate something similar to their vegetable roles. We had an interesting talk about life as a Filipino student. They may have to attend military training as their sixth year of high school, and, in some schools, there are not enough seats, so students have to carry their own stools to school.
They kids had fun learning about jeepneys. A jeepney is a brightly colored minibus used for public transportation. Other people might walk or ride a water buffalo or a horse!
We enjoyed reading a story called Cora Cooks Pancit! Cora takes on the big kid jobs to help her mama cook a delicious Filipino diner fer her family!
For a fun STEM activity, we had a lot of fun sewing our names on some mittens. The beads came from the Philippines. Sewing beads is very popular in the Philippines and is a beautiful art form there!
