Ladies and gentlemen,
welcome to the first Transatlantic school radio bridge in history!
The children of Thadenstraße primary school in Hamburg (above) have asked questions. We, the students of North Country Day school in Winnetka, Illinois (in the Chicago region) have answered them – and asked maaaany qestions back!
And guess what: A few days later, our common radio show was aired in real radio, in Hamburg’s community station TIDE – how awesome is that?!?!?
We learned a lot about….. Germany….
….and about making radio!
(Did you know, what a hot clock is? And how you create international radio shows with partners like Radio Foxes in Hamburg and Pacifica radio in the US?)
As another highlight, we presented our Transatlantic project to our whole school.
ENJOY our audio for all of you in Hamburg and all students across the Ocean!
Here are our questions for you:
What are your names? Old are you? Do you have any pets? What is the weather like now? What school do you go to? What is school like in Germany? How long is your school day? What subjects are popular in school? What languages do you learn in school? How is your school organized? What is your favorite book? What movies and TV shows do you like? What is the food like in Germany? And: Do you love Hamburgers?
Greetings to our new friends at Thadenstraße in Hamburg! We are greatly looking forward to hearing from you, again!
Many thanks to the Florian and Steffi and the Radiofüchse (Radio Foxes) crew in Hamburg!
Last but not least: Many thanks to our Teacher David Green and to Radijojo!
We are Third Grade Audio – the young voices of North Shore Country Day Day School – thanks for listening! 🙂
