What is Nordic?

Published: July 18, 2018

Today, we had a visit from our Nordic neighbors at Sjölunden (our Swedish village) and the Nordic Family Week (a program for families, where Norwegian, Swedish, Danish, and Finnish are taught!). We quickly discovered that while we are alike in some respects, we are different in others! In order to explore this, we played "Nordic Emoji Bingo." We discussed with the credit villagers from Sjölunden and the families at the family week if the Emojis in each square were related to Norwegian, Swedish, Danish, or Finnish culture... or some mix of all four. We then sang a song with verses in all four languages!
