One Magnificent Mosque
Living in the UAE and teaching all Arabic students, I get some experience that are pretty unique to say the least. Like today for example. I got to take my 27 first grade students on a field trip to the Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi. Religion and culture play a very strong part in their daily lives, what with prayer 5 times a day, and learning about Islam and faith at school. So we got to take a guided tour of the mosque. It really is magnificent inside and outside. Check out some of our pictures below.
After the trip we came back to school and drew pictures of the mosque. We even got to write the sentence "We go to the mosque." in both English and Arabic. I was impressed by how much detail they remembered seeing.
