YCIS Chongqing Year 6 Xi’an Camp
Xi’an, located in central-northwest China, records the great changes of the country just like a history book. It was called Chang’an in ancient times which means the eternal city. As the eastern terminal of the Silk Road and the site of the famous Terracotta Warriors of the Qin Dynasty, Xi’an city now has won a good reputation all around the world.
As an important part of our YCIS Chongqing curriculum, excursions provide opportunities for students to gain knowledge outside classrooms and experience different cultures while they are far away from home. This year, our Year 6 Learning Community students went to Xi’an from April 22 to April 26 to explore different aspects of this historical city.
During the 4-day Xian trip, student took part into different activities involved in teambuilding, cultural recognition, physical challenges, hands-on DIY, food tasting, scenery site-seeing, as well as having a lot fun with peers and local community. The activities include Chinese calligraphy, Terracotta Warriors visit, DIY Biangbiang noodle, museum trip, bike-riding around city wall, Muslim Street shopping, craft making, and hiking in Qingling mountain.
It was such a wonderful and enjoyable excursion for the whole learning community that took learning into the ‘outside classroom’.
