Culture Aixchange

In light of some drastic changes in plans, we helped facilitate a culture exchange activity in Aix this morning with all the staff. Great Great time. Culture exchanges are a great backup plan if you need and always pretty simple to execute.
Here are some questions we used in addition to having kids take pictures to help with the results and discussions. The goal was not to win but to get to know your team and learn something new.

+ During your Aixcursion, take a picture of each restaurant that that you come across that specializes in food from a culture other than France.

1 Find a flag from a country other than a country represented in your group. How do you determine where someone is from?

2 Figure out something that you all have in common that is unusual and take a picture of something to represent that.

3 Find the most stereotypical things or people that symbolize the countries represented in your group.

4 Find something that one country thinks is rude but another country thinks is normal.

5 Pose at a fountain and attempt to recreate it. Why was it designed to look like that?

6 Take a picture of everyone's feet around something of cultural significance.

7 Find a license plate from the furthest place from Aix that you can.

8 Find something that you can only buy in Europe that Americans want. Is there anything that you can only buy in America that Europeans want.
