Fun with Snow and Hot tea from Russia

It is a precious and full of fun lesson from our Russian classpals. They introduced snow, how they had fun making snowmen and how they played with snow during this white season. They also demostrated us the hot tea tradition in Russia. The silver tea kettle "samovar" caught our eyes and we found it very beautiful and very special. What a great lesson from Russia!!! Thanks, kids! You have done a great job!
