In the project "Around the Cow“ pupils visited different farms in our
district. They presented not only the living conditions of the cows
but also of the people in the past and today. They made films, reports
with lots of photos and found out much more about living conditions of
milk cows in the villages. They even built a life-sized sculpture of a
cow; using wire and paper-maché. This cow is still standing in a small
recess of our school.
In another project the pupils visited the last two watermills of our
area and were shown how they worked in the past and work today.
Special things are typical for special regions like “Brezel” or
“Knödel” in Bavaria. But we have also specialities in our surroundings:
“Schnellbrot”, "Hochzeits- suppe” (Weddingsoup) and lots of other
things. All these recipes you can read on this website (Wendische
Küche) and our advice: try it - it's very delicious!!!
In the fourth project you can learn a lot about “Rundlingsdörfer”. The
groups visited a museum which shows everything about “Rundlingsdörfer”
: how they came into being and also how they got their curious names.
