First grade goes global!

Trying to get the ball in the cup!

First Graders are going GLOBAL this year by traveling around the world.  They have learned about North America and the history of their own state, North Carolina.  Recently they traveled to Europe, where they visited France and Germany.  They learned that France is the most visited country in the world.  The students made their own game that is played by French children called bilboquet or ball in cup.  They also learned that Germany celebrates Martinstag on November 11 and that Germany is the home of the frankfurter and fairy tales.  Students learned other important facts, including geographic location, customs, traditions, and activities associated with each country.  Students will continue to travel around the world this year.  We will keep you posted on our travels.
