Last week, Grade 4 went on an interesting field trip to the newly opened Musheireb Museums as part of our provocation for the second unit of inquiry “Ancient Civilisations”.
This new unit will allow students to go back in time and learn about the history of some civilisations from all around the world, in order to make connections between the past, our present, and what is awaiting us in the future. We had such an amazing time visiting a couple of the first original houses that were built in the area in the early 1900, which are now remodeled, yet still remain their unique look of traditions and cultures. We also got a chance to learn more about the history of Qatar and explore the drastic changes that the country went through during the past 100 years.
We recommend a second visit to the museums with the rest of the family. It is worth the trip 🙂
