Globetrotting Kids: 7 Days in China – The Movie

School was about to start back home. So to get the kids in a learning frame of mind I gave them an assignment: Make a movie about your time in China so far. Only problem? China doesn’t allow access to YouTube which meant I had to wait until leaving the country to share it with you.

And so now, about 30 days after the fact, here is the boys’ take on their first few days in China.

Note: They did it all themselves (chose the pics, figured out how to use iMovie, added the voiceover, etc. – makes a Mama proud.)

Also Note: The “pork” they mention is actually “Peking Duck” and these pics are all pre-haircut :)

    You should really take your kids to China. It’s really great seeing the buildings and stuff. It’s amazing. You should see the Great Wall. You won’t believe it.

    You should go in the water cube one day because it’s amazing. it’s cube but when you get inside it’s a pool and once I saw a guy who boosted up a jet! He went in a jet and powered up!

    I loved the video that you posted!I would love to go to the great wall of China, how did you like it there? And the fishies that you saw are all of them red or how many different colours and types are there? Over all I”m pretty sure that your trip there was a blast! And my last question is what was your favourite part of your journey to China? From: Kate in Mrs G’s class

  • Sherrie Guthrie October 17, 2011, 1:20 PM

And the fishies that you guys had in the video were they all red or were some of them different colours and types?Over all I’m pretty sure you had a good trip to China! And my final question is what was your favourite part of your trip? From: Kate in Mrs. G’s class
