Students in the German program at Garden City High School and Middle School traveled to Bethlehem, Pennsylvania for a firsthand look at the Historic German Moravian Settlement. The settlement was founded in 1741 and at the site, guides dressed in clothing typically worn by Moravians in the 1700s to show students the buildings in which the settlers lived, worked and worshiped.
After the tour, the students made a small stop in a town bookstore for hot cocoa, candies and unique gifts. They spent time enjoying the Christkindlmarkt, an outdoor German Christmas market housed in several heated tents where traditional German food, beverages and holiday crafts from the U.S. and Germany are sold.
The field trip to Bethlehem is a favorite outing for German students and creates for a memorable experience each December.
