Today we had our field trip to explore an old Qatari Home owned by Mohammed Bin Jassim, the son of the founder of Qatar. We were able to see many old photographs and artifacts of old Msheireb. Later we had the chance to see how the neighborhood has transformed into a more sustainable place. At the end of our tour, the museum hosted a creative art activity with clay.
On Tuesday, Grade 2 students visited Souq Waqif for a great Scavenger Hunt around the market place. They were given clues and had to discover which part of the Souq to visit. Their stops included the Spice Market, Arts Market, Textiles and Cushion Market, Carpet Market, Horse Stables and the Camel Pen. They had to ask vendors and visitors for directions and information to answer questions related to our unit. We had so much fun!!!
During our second unit of inquiry, we have been learning about how different communities develop its members and their responsibilities.
