In honor of Johannes Gutenberg, today was a German day in our Aspen Co-op history class! This being the case, it was only appropriate that the activities and instructions were printed in German! Here’s what happened!
Anna, who is studying German, pulled out her dictionary and began helping team one translate. Joe, on team two, started making up his own instructions, and team number three decided it would be best to find an online translator. Eventually they all started to figure it out.
We ended up making a German flag, carving our own block print letters (using a potato), making muesli, listening to a story in German, along with other activities.
The kids were great sports which made it a schöner Tag!
