UN Day at school - indigenous people

United Nations Day is actually in October. At school we used to celebrate UN day on the correct day but it with school only starting in Mid-September it didn't leave a lot of time for a real in depth study of material. So now UN day at school is celebrated on February 1st. This year for UN day the classes at school learned about different indigenous peoples.  Each class sets up a display to share about the things that they have learned. In their classrooms they also display some extra work that was done during cultural studies and art. There are also some presentations by the older students. It's a nice morning at school that ends in a picnic lunch. Here are the girls with their class projects.

Heidi's class learned about Australia and the Aboriginal people

Rose's Class learned about Japan and the Ainu people
