Hesitantly, the children slip their hands into the bag. What is this pink elephant doing there? And this triangle? They are there to show them the shapes that can be found on the facade of Saint-Maximin Church. The next step is to count the sides of the Tour aux Puces, because it is neither round nor square. Will the children remember its name? They will probably prefer its legends of princesses and dogs. They may even be able to sing the famous song of Charlemagne. That’s right, the one who invented schools! The highlight of the exercise is the reconstruction of the belfry! Not with stones, as we know that their little arms would not manage it, but with a magnetic puzzle.
After this sensorial experience packed with observations, they will be able to tell the entire story of Thionville! Who says that little kids can’t do what big kids can do?
