Goodness gracious, Great Walls of China

CORBIN — Corbin Intermediate School looked a little different Friday morning. In fact, one hallway invited students, parents and visitors to a totally fascinating and intriguing world called “The Great Halls of China.”

Sixth-grade teachers and students graciously invited one person into the interesting era of ancient China when dynasties ruled and the Great Wall of China was constructed. It was the second year of the exhibition where sixth-grade students present different aspects of Chinese culture.

They show activities like models they’ve built for the exhibition — such as the Great Wall — as well as bring samples of Chinese food they’ve made, along with playing and showing Chinese music and art.

Said Mrs. Dixon, “The kids like to work with the technology and make PowerPoint presentations on Chinese life and history. They also like to dress up in the traditional Chinese costumes, and present their projects about the customs, culture, religion and inventions that came from China.”
