Our American Heritage, Ethnic Smorgasbord & Culture Technology Projects

Today was an exciting day in fourth grade! We celebrated our country and our individual cultures in a variety of ways. The day started with Mrs. Rawinski's class presenting their play entitled, 'Our American Heritage'. In 15 minutes, we learned about the history of the United States. This is a picture from the 'Head'n West' scene!
 The Civil War...
 America today! "This land is your land, this land is my land..."

At lunch, we had an ethnic smorgasbord! Over the past month, students did research on a country of their ancestry, and last night, families prepared a dish from a country of their ancestry and joined us for lunch!
 Our halls were lined with all the flags of the countries where our ancestors are from!
 We had five tables of cultural foods for everyone to try!






Students also escorted their guests to our computer lab where they showed the Power Point they made about the geography, traditions, famous people, and cultural foods of their country and a Photo Story they made about the history, traditions, and modern day life of the Ho Chunk nation.


 
A special thanks to all parents who helped prepare food for this special day. I hope you engaged in great conversations with your children about their heritage! E Pluribus Unum is a Latin phrase meaning "Out of many, one!" We are a variety of cultures, but we are ALL American!
