International awareness education gives a good opportunity to children to learn about different cultures, customs and food all around the world. In April, we chose France as the theme of the event.
France is a rich and fascinating country in so many ways. It is known for its beautiful architecture and spectacular cuisine.
Our French event took place in the third week of April. First, we introduced some new coloring activities so the children got familiar with the colors of the French flag and a few of France’s famous building. The children also had the opportunity to find the country in the map of Europe.

As the main art craft of the week, the children were making three-dimensional models of Pari’s iconic building, the Eiffel tower. The children colored and cut out the four sides of the tower and used glue to paste them together.
