Kölleda to Meskwaki peers, vol. 2

DSC04673

Hello! 🙂 How are you? Welcome to Kölleda, our nice little town in central Germany! Kölleda is more than 1200 years old. It existed long before Columbus “discovered” what was then called “America”.  Here are some snapshots:

That’s our library. It is already renovated – a wonderful place to read and learn.  On the next picture, you see us….. learning the names of the colors in your language Meskwaki! From what we know, we assume that we are the very first German kids ever in history who have tried this….! DSC04656DSC04654We have so many questions for you. And we would be very very happy to hear from you soon! Akhoi! Your friend from the Kölleda-Thüringia-Germany nation 🙂

Children’s rights – across the Atlantic!

IMG_6925Dear friends in America,

we have talked about children’s rights on our side of the Atlantic; here in Germany and also in Kenya, Africa. Now; here are our questions to you:

  • How are the children’s rights in America, actually?
  • What children’s rights do you have in United States?
  • Do you have children’s rights in the USA, anyway?

We would be happy to hear from you!
Greetings from primary school Alt-Karow in Berlin, Germany!
