Following the China Adventure

If you are not following the Discovery Student Adventures in China, you are missing out on a fantastic trip–and a great education. Adam Controy‘s post (from the BlackBerry Discovery Education gave to all participants):

Last night I slept in a tent at the base of the Great Wall of China. Today I did a 10k hike on the Great Wall. It was a surreal experience and put into perspective how I look at other parts of the world. We hiked a part of the wall that most people do not get a chance to see. The hike challenged my fear of heights. I could hear my fifth grade students in my head, “Don’t be afraid to take a risk. Challenge yourself!” Afterwards I felt a sense of accomplishment and pride. The students on this trip work so well together. It was great to watch their collaborative efforts and excitement, especially when we scaled part of the wall.
We are sitting on the bus and many students and teachers are taking a much needed and well deserved nap. This truly is an experience I will hold onto forever.

Jessica Keith posted 3 great videos on her China Adventure. What an education you can get from these short films (Jessica, you should enter them in a film festival contest).

    I have seen advertisement at about Students Adventures in China. How to apply for the program? I hope knowledge in Chinese language is not a must for that program? I do not know Chinese, but I would love to go to China.
