The field study consisted of a one-day visit to Yokosuka. During the day, we visited the Verny Commemorative Museum to learn about early shipbuilding, visited the Museum ship Mikasa to gain an insight into Japan’s past, and took a tour of the Yokosuka US Naval base to learn about current international relations. Students also had a chance to sample the famous Navy Curry and Yokosuka Navy burgers.
Working in teams, students enjoyed time to explore Yokosuka and complete research for their projects. Back in the classroom, students gave presentations about their research and completed written reports.
