What is life? (生きる、死ぬってなんだろう?)

Today was a sad day for us. The leech and the catfish that live in the school pond died. Before we reflected on what have caused both the creatures to die, we talked about the concept of life and death.

The students talked about some of their philosophical concepts of life. Some students shared that living things have souls and are the energy source to life. These deep conversation helps us reflect on how we can act responsively towards nature
