Yom Ha'atsma'ut 2017

On Yom Ha'atsma'ut, Israel's 69th Independence Day, Alma Primary School went on a "journey" to Israel with their "passports" (written in Ivrit). After our morning tfillot in which we sang "im tirtsu" - a quotation from Herzl himself, we watched a video on interesting facts on Israel and "took off" to visit four different cities in the country.
1. Jerusalem:
The Jerusalem Station covered a presentation of the holy sites in Israel's capital city. We heard songs like "yerushalayim shel zahav" and discussed the old and new neighbourhoods. Most exciting, though, was the arts and crafts activity that followed: a golden mosaic to decorate the ancient city walls! 
2. Tel Aviv:
The city that never sleeps is full of high tech companies and innovations that our small start up nation has generated for the good of the world, such as the irrigation drip, Waze app, cherry tomato and more. Children worked in small groups to create ideas of their own, such as a time machine, a "smart" food vending machine, a robot that does your house chores, a never ending chocolate fountain and more.
3. Galilee
In the North of Israel you can find many various ethnicities and religions, such as Christians, Druze, Muslims, Bahais, Circassians and of course - Jews. Students were made familiar with the Israelis relationships with their neighbours and heard a story about two brothers who had an argument. We then had to suggest ways to make "shlom bayit" - peace at home.
4. Eilat:
Kids "ran" an Israeli restaurant making chocolate balls and taking selfies on the Red Sea "beach".

We learnt about what people wore in Victorian days, looked at old types of fastenings (buttons of all materials, hook & eye) and new types of fastenings (velcro), played with belts and laces and sorted clothes by materials. We had an amazing and fun day and learnt so much! And of course, everyone's favourite part of any trip - lunch!
