Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes, a Form One Classroom Activity

The Form One class at Orkeeswa is reading Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes. It is a story about a little girl who lived in Hiroshima where the United States dropped the atomic bomb. The atomic bomb caused cancer called leukemia so it continued to kill many people after the first day of the atomic bomb.

Even though the story is very sad, my Form One class has done some very fun activities with our teacher Lisa Phu. When Sadako got sick with leukemia, she made paper cranes to give her hope. Each student in Form One got a piece of colorful paper and we learned to fold them and make paper cranes. All of our paper cranes are hung in our classroom now. Another activity we did was making sushi. Each group made one big sushi roll using nori, rice, avocado, egg and cucumber.

The activity that I enjoyed the most was folding paper cranes. It makes our classroom look nice when they are hung from the ceiling. And now I know how to make my own and I can hang them in my house and my house will look nice also.
