Grade 5 students will visit the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston today to make connections between the things we have learned this year and what we see in the museum. To expand on their studies of the Ancient World in Social Studies, experienced docents will take us in small groups through the Ancient Near East (Mesopotamia,) Ancient Egypt, Ancient Greece, and Ancient Rome collections, investigating how artifacts can represent culture. After a school-provided snack, students will return to the Museum with their teachers for a tour/scavenger hunt which will focus on connections to other parts of this year's curriculum.
The boys will need to bring a bag lunch with them to school that morning.
Dress code is relaxed (collared shirt, school pants, school shoes.)
We will return to Fessenden in time for Middle School Sports.
