National German Week, October 5 to October 11, provides a great opportunity for recognizing the many contributions of Germans to the modern world and a chance to highlight the great German programs in public and private schools across the country.
October 6 is German-American Day, commemorating the arrival of thirteen German families to Philadelphia in 1683. These families founded Germantown, PA, the first German settlement in the original thirteen American colonies. In 1983, October 6 was proclaimed German-American Day in celebration of the 300th anniversary of German immigration to the US.
You'll find everything you need to celebrate National German Week in the Promoting German section of the AATG Store. Kick off your celebrations with the new National German Week stickers with 8 exciting new designs (120 two-inch stickers per pack). Order German flags, mini German toothpick flags, posters, balloons, temporary tattoos, and pencils. The National German Week Starter Kit includes many ideas to promote German, sample language for state and city proclamations, a German-American timeline, trivia questions, classroom activities, and more.
You'll also find a number of items with a focus on Germans in America in the AATG store, including One Germany-The Other Side of the Wall DVD, Oma Annas Schatzkoffer, and large-format posters: The Germans: A Nation of Immigrants, Pennsylvania-The Heritage of German Immigration, and The Declaration of Independence (auf Deutsch!).
