The non-profit organisation «Ethnologues en Herbe» (Ethnokids) was created by social anthropologists and multimedia specialists. Over fifty workshops have been conducted in French classrooms since its conception in 2000. Guided by an anthropologist, the participants conduct fieldwork in and about their neighbourhood and their daily life. The resulting ethnographies are then uploaded on www.ethnokids.net, a website that comprises several hundred French-speaking classes around the world which are also studying their neighbourhood using the pedagogical tools available on the site. This article introduces the association and shows, through concrete examples, how the methods of social anthropology have been successfully used in French classrooms.
