TJMS 7th and 8th Grade German Students Build Their Own Village

Students in Kandel Baxter's 7th and 8th Grade German class may not have a chance to travel to Germany, so they did the next best thing. . .they built Germany in their classroom!

Combining culture, communication, and comparisons, each student researched and built a model of a German building. The village was then laid out on the floor of Frau Baxter's classroom where the students could work within the city to aid in descriptions, vocabulary and giving directions.
