Travel Tots~

Wednesday we had Travel Tots come in the morning.... The kids "traveled" to Switzerland where they learned that the people that live in Switzerland speak French, German, Italian and Romansh. The mountains are called Alps. Clocks and watches are made in Switzerland. Animals that live in Switzerland include - goats, foxes, chamois, marmots, woodpeckers, blue jays and trout and Salmon. Fondue is a fun way to eat, and they children had a pretend fondue.

Milk comes from both cows and goats, and we use it to make cheese and butter!
We also learned what a compass was and that even though it looks like a watch, a compass is different. A compass shows us what direction we are going in where a watch shows us the time.

We got to put a Switzerland sticker in our passports. Travel Tots will be back on the 22th for a Spanish lesson. I'm sure the kids can't wait. :)
