Hello Parents,

We had a lively class today! We reviewed our song, "Alle Meine Entchen" and then, we dove right into the World Wars. We read about how Germany was responsible for both wars. We discussed World War II and how Hitler was able to convince the country to persecute the Jewish people. Your student learned about the Allies defeating the Germans. They should be able to name all four countries that made up the Allies.

We learned that Germany was divided after World War II with the Allies controlling different parts of the country. We discussed that the Soviet Union controlled East Germany and did not give them the freedoms that West Germany had. We talked about the building of the Berlin Wall.

German Game: Today, our game was a simulation of the Berlin Wall. The students were numbered off and some were in East Germany and others were in West Germany. I had our East Germans imagine that they were very poor and hungry. They longed for the freedom that West Germany provided its citizens. Two brave East Germans decided to try and sneak across, but the results were less than pleasant. After the game, we learned about the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989. We celebrated and carefully broke down our "Wall".

At the end of class, one of our parents came to show us a Mug from Germany and she had Euros to show the class. She shared that all 19 countries in the European Union use Euros as their currency.

Homework: Please have your child complete any pages they have not finished for their copy books.

If your child does not have page protectors or dividers, please get those asap. The copybooks we are compiling will be worth the most points at the end of the school year.
