Students “traveled” to India and Greece through very informative and engaging talks by Meadows parents. Many thanks to Camille and Teddy’s dad, and the moms of Sunaina, Darsh, Kanav, and Armaan for a wonderful, informative, and educational experience!
Students learned, among many things, that India is in South East Asia and the seventh largest country by area. Its capital is New Delhi. In addition, they also learned about the food, language, clothing, and saw many symbolic items from the country.
They also learned that Greece is about the same size as England and New York, and that there are over 3,000 Greek islands scattered throughout the Eastern Mediterranean, of which roughly 200 are inhabited. They saw what the Greek flag looks like and discovered that most Greeks belong to the Greek Orthodox Church. They not only learned that English gets an important part of its words today from ancient Greece, but also heard a few Greek words like parakalo (please), ne (yes), and ohxi (no), and more!
We capped International Month at Meadows with the International Food Festival last Friday, and had a great time! Many thanks to all the families who came and brought delicious food from Korea, Poland, Mexico, India, Philippines, and the United States!
