G is for Germany
The last week before the winter break we studied Germany. I save this country for last during our Europe unit because there are many Christmas symbols and stories from Germany. We read this book a few times. It is loaded with great snip its of information about Germany. My class was most impressed by the Nutcracker and the Autobahn! We also learned about Beethoven. I found this web site to listen to Symphony 5 and 8. We voted and graphed which piece we liked the best (#5). I also used this web site to learn more about Beethoven and his music. This is an online radio program for kids. I also found this coloring sheet. Our journey through Europe is done! On to Antarctica in January.
