After the meeting, all the foreign teachers completed the "Nazca Giant Painting" project under the guidance of professional group builders. This project divided the outline of a complete painting into several areas and each group completed a piece of it. Through the cooperation within and between groups, each part stuck together to restore the whole picture of the painting. By doing this, the communication ability, collaboration ability, and time management abilities of the team have been enhanced. In the activity, the foreign teachers demonstrated high energy, efficient communication, patience, and careful drawing, leaving a beautiful painting on the playground.
