Discover amazing things about St. Martin from home! Have fun and learn about the island, while you’re protecting your community and yourself by staying home. Get fascinating and free stuff from Les Fruits de Mer–every day!
Today we are focusing on local culture and what we can do to preserve and share it. We are also starting our Heritage Backup program so we can use the time we have to make sure St. Martin’s history includes stories about everyone.
BOOKLET OF THE DAY
Heritage Backup, Part One
This booklet is the first installment of our Heritage Backup program. We cover two topics. The first is how to create an inventory of your own personal heritage. In the second part, we look at the amazing amount of information that you can find in family photos.
ACTIVITY OF THE DAY
Heritage Vertical Poem
Learn how to write a vertical poem and write your own using the word HERITAGE, or a word that you choose.
Personal Heritage Inventory
Make an inventory of the heritage items in your house, just like you would if you worked at a museum!
