MILLENNIUM@TEA@PARTY
Let's talk with the kids of the world over a cup of "Tea"I



@In the first term, the fifth grade students studied about multicultural co-habitation in a program called Waku Waku World according the curriculum of Nunosho Town works. Through encounters with many foreign people, they learned 
about other countriesf cultures, environment, and children. Yet best of all, they received many dreams and inspirations from their encounters with many different and wonderful ways of life. 
@And now as a result of these experiences, we (students and teachers) have begun to think about communication with other countriesf children, even though we canft meet directly. We chose the theme of gfoodh specifically gteah,which is used wold wide, as our topic for information exchange.
@Thus, we would like to communicate with children world wide, using letters and various media such as the Internet, TV conferences or VTR letters. For that purpose, here is a report on our information exchanges thus far and childrenfsreactions.
