Pei said her students will spend a total of 10 days in the United States to learn about life in the United States. The students’ Oskaloosa visit ended Friday morning. They traveled to Des Moines Friday to learn about state government. Then, the students will travel to New York City and Washington, D.C.
Pei invited Oskaloosa students and teachers to travel to China and visit her school.
“Happy New Year,” she said.
The Chinese students then took the stage to give American students a taste of Chinese culture. The Chinese students performed a variety of art forms that included things such as fan dancing; Tai Chi; molihua; Chinese paper cuts, knots and calligraphy; a Chinese yo-yo; Chinese Kungfu — cudgel play; and guzheng.
