Here is a video of the musical performance that the 5th grade at Germantown Academy did before their Chinese banquet. Owen played the soprano xylophone. (Be patient, it might take a moment to load)
The musical performance and the banquet that follows are the big celebration of the end of their China unit. Since January, the grade has been studying China — they’ve made kites, learned calligraphy, seen the Chinese acrobats, gone to Chinatown in Philly, seen the exhibits at PAFA, read novels about china, and so on. Generally, they’ve been immersed in China for over two months!
There were 17 groups and each prepared a dish for the banquet. Owen’s group made Sweet and Sour Chicken. They had to research their recipe, assign responsibilities and do all the preparation and cooking themselves. For a few photos of the banquet, click here.
