Some of the students in the Bowling Green City School District are attending classes during their Spring Break. These are hands on enrichment classes covering everything from crafts, to culture, to photography.
Several students are getting a taste of Japan during their spring break.
"We learned what type of food they eat and what clothes they wear," fifth grader, Emily Pride said.
Last October Juanita Cole traveled to Japan as part of a Fulbright Teacher Participant Scholarship. Part of her agreement with the Japanese government was to share what she learned.
"They need to have an understanding what's on the outside when they leave Kentucky and the United States. We do have some students in our school that haven't been outside Kentucky, let alone 14 hours away," Cole said.
This week the students are learning about Japanese culture, food, traditions and the language.
The students have also been practicing using chopsticks all week long.
"You have to learn how to do it the right way. It's hard at first, but it gets easier," second grader, Casey Greer said.
At the end of the week the students will test their skills at a Japanese restaurant.
