Learning About Serbia

What do we think we know about Serbia?  Here are some of the student responses we got when we asked that question today:

“It’s in the Middle East.”
“It’s in Africa.”
“It’s in Europe.”
“It’s in Russia.”
“Serbia is near the Balkan Peninsula and Ottoman Empire.”
“Serbia is mostly desert.”

(Obviously we need to work on our geography! ¬† Even the map included in our blog post didn’t help some of us.)

“People in Serbia don’t speak English.”
“The government is democratic.”
‘The government is communist.”

(Hmmm…some investigation needed here.)

“Serbia used to be part of Soviet Union, but it fought for its independence.”
‘Serbia played a role in the beginning of World War I with the assassination of an archduke.”
“The primary religion in Serbia is orthodox Christianity.”

We’ll do some exploring and be back tomorrow with a post about what we learn about this country and our new friends there!
