Grade 1 at the Qingdao Museum
Last week grade 1 students had a unique opportunity to visit the Qingdao Municipal Museum in connection with our central idea, “personal histories are documented to show journeys through time and place” within the PYP organizing theme Where We Are in Place and Time.
At the museum students were invited to analyse recently discovered artifacts from a number of sunken ships off the coast of China. Students discovered the wide range of artifacts (plates, bowls, coins, statues, vases, books, clothing, artwork, weapons, etc.) that collectively offered further insight into what life was like over 300 years ago in this part of Asia.
This visit assisted students to gain a stronger understanding of how artifacts contribute to our understanding of the past.
