International Trip to Turkey

International Trip to Turkey 2013

My students had an awesome opportunity to travel to Turkey during this past Spring Break.  Mrs. Kahraman and I led a delegation of 5 students (Elias – 4th, Lilly – 4th, Nishanth – 6th, Sarah – 4th and Tau – 4th), 4 parents, & 1 additional family member (Anisa – 7th) of a TMSA student to Turkey. 

The trip was designed to be an extension of my classroom.  The purpose of the trip was to give the students opportunities to listen and practice speaking Turkish while learning about the rich history and culture of Turkey.  We visited the following respectively:

  • Topkapi Palace, Hipodrom & Blue Mosque, Basilca Cistern and Hagia Sophia Museum – Istanbul, Turkey
  • Duden Falls & Mediterranean boat tour  – Antalya, Turkey
  • Pamukkale – Denizli, Turkey
  • Clock Tower & city tour (by boat) – Izmir, Turkey
  • Ehesus Archaeological Site, Ceramic show and shopping – Ephesus, Turkey
  • Dolmabahce Palace, Sapphire Tower, Miniaturk and Grand & Spice Bazaar – Istanbul, Turkey

In addition to learning about Turkey, the students bonded and participated in fun activities that included camel riding, swimming, and singing as I played the SAZ

Food and tea plays a major part in the Turkish culture.  Our children dined in 3 different homes of Turkish natives.  And, our children had the opportunity to order from menus in Turkish and try lots of Turkish foods.  Of course, the Dondurma (Turkish Ice-Cream) was the highlight of the trip in the dessert category for the children.    

The weather was pleasant 6 out of the 7 touring days.  Everyone remained healthy throughout the trip.  Moreover, the children were consistently on their best behaviors.  They represented the Triangle Math and Science Tigers well.

 In conclusion, the trip was a success!
