First, Australia, done by a Grade One student
Of course, I had to photograph the France display, since I used to be their French teacher. Plus here's an excellent display about Germany, done by a former student who is now in Grade 8.
And here is my tutoring student's display all about Swiss foods. She had lots of cheese and chocolate to taste and she even had a little warming tray to melt a piece of Raclette cheese that she put on top of a piece of cooked baby potato. It was DELICIOUS! And then we have a few shots of some displays about Canada and its careers, culture, and foods.
Please make sure you click on the photos to see the details. For example, the next one on the left shows some First Nations culture complete with beaded moccasins, a piece of birch bark, and a replica of a canoe. The boy also trimmed his display to look as though it were framed with wood.
The students obviously had a great time with their displays (plus the fact that they got out of classroom work for two hours today.) Next Tuesday, the Olympic torch is coming to our little village and there will be street entertainment right on the grounds of this school. So my daughter and I will be heading down with our Canadian flag and cameras to catch as much of the excitement as possible. I'm also going to wear my Canada hockey jersey (with Lorne's permission, of course). So stay tuned for next week's ABC Wednesday and I'll post some photos if I get any good ones.
