Two of our wonderful families are from India and helped teach us about Indian culture!  They brought in beautiful clothes! (and a baby sister!)

They brought scarves and bindi for our children to wear. We also had a little dancing game to Indian music.

When we studied Australia this year, we brought out objects that a former student brought from her trip.  The children always enjoy looking at money and other cultural objects.  We also look at pictures of animals from Australia.

We enjoy Australian dot painting every year.

Our friend Joel came to play his didgeridoo again for us this year.  The children had SO many questions for him!

A HUGE thank you to our parents and to our friend Joel for helping us to learn about different cultures!
