Humaniora i dag

Published: June 29, 2019

Today the students learned about Skogfinner. They were shown pictures from Finnskogen and also a movie from "Finnetorp", which is their farm.  Afterwards, they were divided into groups and learned about their mythology, where and why they moved to Norway, their agricultural techniques and they also started building a small Skogfinn house. Even though they didn't work on each task for a long time, they remembered a lot about the different topics and gained some insight into the culture of the Skogfinn people.

In the end, they got a "Dagens spørsmål": Norway wants to build windmills in Finnskogen. What negative consequences can this have on Finnskogen and Skogfinner?
