The Swedish-American Museum

We had a really fun learning experience at the Swedish-American Museum on Wednesday.  We had a chance to learn a Swedish song and dance, complete a Swedish craft, and role-play the Swedish immigrant experience as we pretended to make the journey all the way to America by ship.  Whatever the particular social and economic forces that drove us to leave our homeland, they must have been powerful to get us to leave our farm with the cozy kitchen and wooden animals.  See if your student can tell you about what is going on in these photos.
