Heritage Day Fun
Friday was Heritage Day for the Laurel-Concord-Coleridge third grade class. They took a trip without actually leaving the school as they visited several countries.

The students had been working on their Heritage Project and Friday was the conclusion of this project. The students researched their own culture and ancestors. A potluck was planned with about 45 different dishes brought in by volunteers. In the afternoon, the students had three different stations to visit to learn about the games from different countries. Stations were located in the wrestling room, their classroom and the activity area. Students played games from Germany, Egypt, Sweden, Ireland and Guatemala. The students also learned how to make maracas. In the activity area, they learned a Russian dance called Troika. After getting their passports stamped for each country they visited, the students all commented what a fun day it had been.
