A French Tradition: On 1 April, children use paper fish to play an April Fools trick. This involves sticking a paper fish onto the back of as many adults as possible and then running away yelling “Poisson d’Avril!” (April Fish!). Our French students had so much fun participating in this tradition! They created their own paper fish and went from classroom to classroom placing them on doors. All the students and teachers were excited to find their beautiful creations!
