Kids usually arrive in their school uniform, then change into the school sports uniform.

Karuta (similar to Snap) is a versatile game, which is very popular with elementary school kids. It is being used here in a Japanese class, with one character and a picture beginning with the character, per card.

The rice is substituted on certain days with bread. As a rule, the kids are made to eat every morsel.
