Students in the second grade have had the amazing opportunity to learn about various cultural traditions that are special to our JCDSRI families. Our project began when we learned about immigration and, through our fa mily research, decided that it was important to celebrate our diverse cultural backgrounds and traditions. We celebrated Holi – the Hindu spring festival of colors or the festival of sharing love:)
We learned how one special family makes edible centerpieces made up of dried and fresh fruit for special holidays.
Another family shared their beautiful tradition of reading books and asking important questions about Passover.
And a fabulous grandmother came from Texas to teach about the history of Texas and the many traditions that are practiced there.
