A Cultural tour through Europe
“Words and images are powerful. They have the power to shift perspectives and ignite change”. This is what we have seen from our preschoolers faces when a new Project called “Cultural tour through Europe (Kulturzug durch Europa) began. A Project Study introduced by four Students from Magdeburg University in Stendal in collaboration with the teachers and kids in the Red Group. It runs in four weeks covering the four countries nearby such as England, France, Russia and Norway. On January 10 & 17, 2019, the preschoolers unearthed the history, language, currency and people from England and France. It was a fun-filled day as the students let them create respective flags and “cup and ball” from France called “Bilboquet”. Typical children’s games, songs and specialties were also offered. This cultural tour has let the kids dip their toes into a country and keep going until they are out of their depth with an eclectic blend of experiences.
