Day 3: Makhampom Theater Group & Chiang Dao Cave

IEP students and teachers were treated to another fantastic day of experiential learning outside of the classroom. Our first stop was the Makhampom Theater Group in Chiang Dao; here we encountered a group of dedicated performers who teach drama and performance art as a creative educational outlet. Here students learned how to make their own juggling balls, team juggle, and use seemingly old materials to make useful new items. These activities tie in perfectly with our arts, drama and sustainability classes.

After our wonderful experience at the theatre, we finished our day off with a visit to the Chiang Dao Cave and grassroots basket weaving factory.

A smile is worth a thousand words.
