There is beauty and power in unity. We must be united in heart and mind. One world, one people. – Lailah Gifty Akita
At St. Lawrence High School & Junior College, we introduce the children to different countries and their cultures every so often, to imbibe the value of unity in them. In Grade 2 the students were introduced to Germany in Europe.
They were taught about the cities and people of Germany and also learnt that Germany has the biggest railway station in the continent of Europe. The students also learnt about Albert Einstein – the most famous scientist in the world, who was born in Germany and invented the telephone and the fluorescent bulb in Germany.
They also learnt fun facts like how Germany has 300 different types of bread and the breads are placed in museums for people to see. The students were fascinated to learn about the special German sausages that are made up of chicken and also about their 1000 different types of sausages.
The main aim of this lesson was to make the children understand more about the world they live in so that they can live in it easily and appreciate the differences that are inherent between different cultures. Every child had a great time learning more about Germany.
