HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) - Students have been learning about Japanese culture at West Virginia camp.

The Herald-Dispatch reports (https://bit.ly/2sCx7gW ) elementary schoolers made sushi and rice balls on Tuesday during Cabell County Schools’ Japanese Immersion Summer Camp in Huntington.

The week-long hands-on program uses activities to teach Japanese songs, dances and also the language by having participants speak as little English as possible throughout the day.

Supervisor Meagan Joseph teaches Japanese to high schoolers, and has been involved with the camp for each of its six years. Joseph says one of its goals has always been making global connections and having the students realize there are people like them outside of West Virginia.

Four-year camper 10-year-old Chloe Smalley says it’s cool because most don’t get to actually visit Japan.
