Blind Kids Learning in Chiang Mai – FIELD TRIPS!

Hi, kids — 

     Special thanks to Ceci and Finn for the great videos telling my students about snow! I know it’s hard to tell  kids who can’t see, about something they’ve never experienced.  BUT YOU DID IT. They  still tell me they don’t really understand how — or why — you go outside and actually PLAY in it, but I think that’s because winter here (now) is 80 degrees or higher,  don’t you?

Today, I thought I’d tell you about 2 trips we’ve taken  (if you click the photos, I think you can make them bigger) —

                          THIS WEEK WE WENT TO THE COUNTRY, TO A RICE FARM.

In fact these students go out to the country nearly every week – to learn where rice (and sometimes other fruits and vegetables) comes from, and how it is harvested.

After working in the morning, we made lunch —

LAST WEEK WE WENT TO AN EXHIBIT AT CHIANG MAI UNIVERSITY. IT WAS LIKE OUR STATE FAIR, ONLY WITH DIFFERENT FOOD AND NOT SO MANY ANIMALS.


The kids can't see, so this is how they figure out what pukins are like: how they're shaped, and where they come from
