The Discovery Student Adventures China travels have ended and our team is homeward bound. Following the posts, both students’ and teachers’ blogs, tweets, photos, and videos was a joy and an education in making connections and building global citizenship.

What has stood out more than anything on our China trip is the students’ strong desire to connect with other people. They wanted to know the people we encountered whether it was our tour guides, the Shaolin monks or classroom children at kung fu school. At our next to last dinner the kids were thrilled when the young monks and school instructors ate with us. More than anything they enjoyed finding common ground. They also learned how life is different. Truly a rewarding experience for me as a teacher.
