Going to the Temple

Every religion teaches people to be good.  Buddhism is the national religion of Thailand. 85 percent of Thai people are Buddhists. All Thai students learn and practice about Buddhist activities. Temple is the natural context for MDVI students to learn more about Buddhism and integrate this functional activity to many skills. MDVI students at Northern School for the Blind (NSB) go to Prasingh temple which is 800 meters far from the school,  twice a month to join Buddhism ceremony and festival with the people in community.

Many skills can be taught through this activity, as shown in the photos and diagram below.
