Second Grade Students Learn About Sweden
Second graders at Hemby Bridge Elementary were in for a treat when Annelie Haski, a native of Sweden, visited to share information about her country and culture. Ms. Haski spoke to students about holiday traditions, clothing, the Swedish alphabet and numbers, and best of all, their food! Students even had the opportunity to sample Swedish cookies during the presentation. Second-grade teacher Lauren Thomas said, “Our students always enjoy learning about other countries and cultures through our ongoing globalization activities, but having the opportunity to learn directly from a member of a different culture makes the experience so much more meaningful.” Hemby Bridge thanks Ms. Haski for taking the time to visit and share with us!
