FIT. for Europe inspires class 5b on Europe

A report by Svea, Inken, Ronja and Elin

A classmate has brought a booklet about Europe. From this we have worked on tasks. There were texts and hidden object pictures that are explained to children about Europe.

We looked at the euro and the symbols on the bills. We asked ourselves this question: “Why does the EU flag have 12 stars?” We have answered this question. Some of us have guessed that the stars are for the member states … but that’s wrong!

12 stars stand for: 12 months has one year, 12 hours each day and night, There are 12 zodiac signs. The 12 stars therefore stand for the harmony and unity of the European peoples. Our teacher Fr. Gehlhar also took pictures which sometimes looked very funny.
