sheep’s head is a part of Bavaria such as beer and Pretzels. Hardly a family in which the card game for four players brought in, at least, Christmas is translated and memorable sayings like “cutters are just people” or “quod lumen lumen” (very freely: “What is light (), light.”)
But in the younger generations, the popularity seems to be rapidly decreasing. The desire of the Bavarian philologists Association suggests at least that the dpa reported.
For it is according to the Association, should a sheep’s head in the future, a kind of school subject and in the schedule to be integrated, for example in the Form of a tournament.
there is No more space in the family
Less students than in the past the traditional card played now, said the Chairman Michael Schwägerl. Sheep’s head should therefore be promoted in schools.
“We wish that the card game is gaining in digital times, more and more importance, also in the school”, – stated in a communication of the Association of teachers in grammar schools and Vocational secondary schools.
For Schwägerl is a reason for the development of that “the game is no longer played in families and thus is not learned.” Although there are Apps for the sheep heads, but the appeal lies in the interaction of the players with each other.
sheep’s head promotes a lot of skills
In times of a globalized world, the Chairman of the Association, there is a return to home and Tradition, this also includes games such as sheep’s head. “Last but not least, it is widely used in the whole of Bavaria, combines Franconia, Swabia and old Bavaria in the Form of a game, and is thus the Image of the diversity and unity of Bavaria.”
Michael Schwägerl gets for his claim from the Augsburg school of education Professor Klaus Zierer. “The educational content of the Schafkopfs cannot be overestimated,” he said in a message of the philologists Association.
students could learn to play with the card, among other things, mathematical, social and strategic competences. For the timetable, the Organisation of a sheep’s head tournament would be a possibility, said Zierer. “The educational mandate will be complied with in a comprehensive sense.”
