A Travellerspoint blog

November

Not being Canadian nor American, I had a great Thanksgiving due to my fun with my students. I made a Turkey where we blew the Mayflower ship from England to America. The winner got to add a new feather to the Turkey.
In other classes they painted eggs in a symbol of 'new life and new beginnings'.
Ummmm.... that didn't turn out very well to the American Natives nor the Australian Natives due to the British landing a ship.
I've never taught Australia Day or Thanksgiving in 14 years, but hey, the current populations are now giving back lands and territory to the Native Peoples.
It's at least a start to what we owe them.
I've also added classes where I teach Western Eddiquite... how to use a knife and fork.
We do this once a month.
It's a hard job but someone has to do it!
