We taught about the American Flag today to all of our classes. We thought it was a good introductory lesson since we were from America. We wanted to tell them a little bit about where we come from. What I enjoyed most is that during the first break we went outside and played soccer with one of the 4th grade classes. They were so excited about us playing with them. I didn't know I was going to be playing, so I had on my boots today. They turned out to work just fine! The students were already asking us to play again tomorrow.
We ate lunch again at my house. Then we went into Werne where we were meeting Jennay's host mom. She was taking us to Bochum were a coal museum was. In the 1960s most of the coal mines were shut down. Only a few of them remain open. To recognize and remember those people who worked in the coal mines a museum was built that showed the developmental history of coal and recreated a coal mine to show what it would have been like to be down in the mines. It was all very interesting, but everything was in German. It was difficult to understand all of it. Jennay's host mom tried her best to translate what the tour guide was saying.
