In 6th grade (last year) we went to Hakuba in Nagano for Field Studies. Click here if you want to look at the Field Studies posts:) So in the Field Studies, we did a lot of things and lots were going on.
What did I enjoy? I enjoyed the mountain biking, and the skits the most. For the skits, we made a skit that had to include the word “sky” in it, in our groups. If you want to watch the skit and learn more about what we did(skit), click here! For the mountain biking, we went to the mountains and it was so fun but very tiring. I really enjoyed the breeze.
What did I do well? I think I did well on talking to other people who I usually don’t really talk to. I was able to know more and get closer to other people so I think that was good.
What challenges did I face? The activity I challenged was mountain biking. It was my first time to do it and actually I was a bit scared at first but I got used to it and it was fun.
How did I grow? I think I got stronger and more responsible because in Field studies my parents weren’t there and that was my first time to go somewhere and stay for more than 3 days without my parents. Also, I needed to organize my stuff so that made me more responsible.
What will I do differently this year? I will talk to more people who I never talked to or don’t really talk to and challenge myself in more of the activities.
Why is field studies an important part of our schooling? I think it’s important because students could get to know others more, learn things, and have fun. Also, it would be a good chance for new students to get closer with others.
