Classes for Schoolchildren in “Sholokhov Centre”

04.03.2016

“Sholokhov Centre” of the Museum-Reserve of M.A.Sholokhov shows the exhibition “When You Can’t but Write…” devoted to the creative work of L.N.Tolstoy, which is followed by an interactive class “Family Postcard”. The six-form students from school 1 of Rostov-on-Don were the first to join it.

L.N.Tolstoy honoured all that was associated with the ancestors, he believed in an inextricable connection between generations and convinced his family that “people think the way their fathers thought, and their fathers thought the way their grandfathers thought, and their grandfathers thought the way their great grandfathers did.”

The writer’s family tree roots in the deep past. The stock of the Tolstoys existed 600 years before Leo Nikolayevich was born, and now there are nearly 400 descendants of the writer. Within nearly 150 years, 6 generations of the Tolstoys have been born. The modern descendants of Tolstoy live in 25 countries of the world. The words of L.N.Tolstoy “Happy is he who is happy at home” were the epigraph of the class.

The children made their family trees and unusual postcards decorated with bright bouquets of dried flowers. The members of the class tried themselves as florists making up compositions of immortelle, St.Jon’s wort, oregano and other steppe herbs and flowers. The postcards became beautiful spring presents for mothers and grandmothers for the coming Women’Day.
