テディーベア プロジェクト / Teddy Bear Project

 iEARNの中で、最も人気あるプロジェクト。テディーベアを交換し合い、ホームステイさせます。観光に連れていったり、言葉を教えたり、そしてテディーベアの気持ちになって日記を付けたり。離島の学校から始めたきっかけや、保護者と共に行われていることが紹介されました。 「いろいろな国の人と連絡がとれるし、相手の国のことを知るだけでなく、自分の国のことも伝えられるのが楽しかった」とは、参加した生徒さんの感想。ぜひ、みなさんもこのテディーベア、ずっと注目していきましょうね。  
Teddy Bear Project is one of the most popular events. We exchanged Teddy Bears with people from other countries and let the bears have homestay.  The host families will take care of the bears, take them around the city, teach cultures and languages, and write bears’ diaries.  In the session, project members reported why they started it and what they have learned from it.  A student member said that “the Teddy Bear Project brings us great opportunities to know other countries and understand ours more and better.”  Everyone, why don’t we pay attention to the Teddy Bears!!
