2a Exploring money from around the world!

2a students brought in money from around the world to show their classmates various currencies. They looked at the style and learned about how each currency has its own value.

Today, 3c visited the Markisches Landbrot bakery. We learnt about organic farming, saw how different types of bread are made and learnt about how the bakery supplies bread to supermarkets and businesses in Berlin.

Grade 3a students looked at the art work from Picasso, and created their own Cubism Heads. They used oil pastels. They did a good job and produced amazing results!
