Philippines Week

Mabuhay! Last week we learned about the Philippines. Among other things, we did the following:

  • Use lots of library books and DVDs (they know me well at the library this summer)
  • Music: Listen to music from the Philippines on Grooveshark
  • Food: Buy/prepare Filipino food from Asian market, including champorado, lumpia, halo-halo, and pancit
  • Culture: Invite a Filipina friend over to talk about her life as a child in the Philippines, dance the tinikling (done with bamboo poles)
  • Craft: Make pastillas de leche, do some weaving (square loom like this)
  • Color flag and map of the Philippines
  • Sport: Swimming lessons
