Exploring Israel with a group of 5-8 year olds in a special 2 hour program this weekend was a blast! We called it our pre-launch party, a pilot class to polish Israel program.
We started by learning about the globe and continents, focused on the diversity of Israel, smelled and touched spices traveling across the Negev dessert on the Spice Road.
The adventure really began when the Star of David went missing from our flag craft!
We had to get on the road and learn the story of David and Goliath, explore Jerusalem landmarks, buy and decorate a Hamsa at the Arabic market and finally become archeologists to find the missing stars in the sand.
Of course we took breaks to sing a song in Hebrew and learn a dance, no class would be complete without a bit of fun!
We finished off by making our own hummus and eating it too!
Thank you dear friends for participating!
