Germany

One of the fathers in our classroom is from Germany so we asked him to come in and share a little bit of Germany when we were studying Europe.  Fabian showed us his lederhosen (leather pants).

He also showed us his Advent wreath and talked to us about the tradition.

Fabian also played and sang the wonderful song “Alle Meine Entchen” which means all my little ducklings.  He said it is the first song German children play and learn to sing.  Below is a clip.

Finally, as a treat, we were able to taste some pretzels as a nod to the German “bretzel.”  Having lived in Germany these were not quite as good but still tasty for the children.  We really enjoyed learning about Germany!  Danke to Fabian!
