I remember that on the first day of fourth grade, the teacher had an activity that required every kid to stand up at the end of the day and say the first and last names of their classmates, say their own name and nationality (the teacher was big on geography), and spell their nationality. Most of my classmates had attended the same school for four years and knew each other, and the majority had Norwegian, Swedish, or German backgrounds.
