Menlo School students, including alums Sienna Stritter and Whitney Damman, visited Trinity School on Wednesday, January 11th, and presented fascinating Japanese Samurai history facts to grades 2 and 4:
Do you know…
The difference between a Japanese Samuai sword and a European sword?
How a Samurai sword is made and how long it takes?
How to write the words “Samurai” and “sword” in Kanji?
How to fold an origami Samurai warrior hat out of newspaper?
This was the third annual visit from Menlo School students and they continued their success of engaging our students in a fascinating, hands-on learning experience!
The presentation was a perfect accompaniment to Grade 4′s pen pal program with students in Okinawa, Japan, and Grade 2′s invention unit in discovering how things are made.
