Grade 5 Museum Visit

As part of our unit, Here and Now, There and Then, our fifth graders visited the Museum of Macedonia.

Students visited the exhibits, checked historical sources and made detailed, labelled sketches of significant artifacts from the museum. This is a national museum with departments that research and exhibit the archaeological, ethnological, historical, and artistic heritage of Macedonia. The museum takes care of over 66,000 items that helped students learn about the past. In our history study we talked about primary and secondary sources and how they help us understand the life of the people in the past. Students learned more about the history of the host and home country and were able to find out about aspects of the past from a range of sources during this trip.
