Access Students Enjoying the U.S. Independence Day Atmosphere

July, 5 2016

On the 4th of July 2016, the Access students from Balti who were in the Summer Camp, experienced an American-like day, celebrating one of the most important events in the history of the USA- the day when this country gained its independence. This was the perfect occasion for the Access participants to find out interesting facts from the history of the USA and discover some exhilarating cultural elements.

After discussing about this historical episode, making presentations on this topic and role-playing in the classroom, they made beautiful decorations and worked on a very special map of the USA, sewing each state out of fabric on a piece of canvas during the Art Club.

Afterwards, they had a more relaxing time during the Independence Day Party, enjoying some delicious doughnuts, listening to good music and learning, and then performing, American line dances. At the end of the day, the students competed against each other in a very motivating Jeopardy game full of questions related to the USA. The winners of the game received money that they later on used to buy books, maps, posters, and other materials for English language studying.

During this day, the students enjoyed themselves a lot and felt the holiday spirit that is present all over the USA on this special occasion.
