It's hard to believe that in just a week, Ashford students will be headed off to Germany! For the past several months, we've been learning about German culture and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Students have been staying after school every Friday for "A Glimpse of Germany," a course generously provided to our students through UConn and the Geothe Insutit . Graduate students Maria and Juntao have been teaching us all about German words and culture! Es war wundervoll!
We've also talked about the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, which are 17 goals that we as a world want to achieve by 2030. While in Germany, all students will be responsible for creating Story Maps with ArcGIS on UNSDG indicators around their inquiry questions. You can learn more about the Global Goals here:
Our whole school has even gotten in on the action by Skyping with our German partner school and sharing care packages back and forth. It's been wonderful to share cultures and community with each other!
As we get ready to go, feel free to check out our itinerary in the post below. T-Minus seven days until we embark on our adventure!
