Grade 1 visited Siam Niramit to learn about Thai history and culture.This learning experience was part of Grade 1’s Project Based Learning. Our theme for the project is culture.
When we arrived, we were greeted by the Siam Niramit staff along with two elephants. After this photo opportunity, Grade 1 continued on into the Traditional Thai Village. Here, the students could see traditional clothing and houses from the different regions of Thailand.
Grade 1 also watched a 90 minute live stage performance. The show was a great opportunity to learn about the history and culture of Thailand. On our way out, the students passed the gift shop where there was a selection of traditional Thai toys, crafts, and souvenirs. It was an entertaining and enjoyable day out as well as a valuable learning experience for the students.
The field trip is part of the current PBL unit , designed by the K2 homeroom teacher Ms. Donna, in collaboration with the art teacher Mr. Alex. It encompasses history and ancestry, and will culminate with the creation of a miniature structure by the K2 students, inspired by the impressive Thai buildings that they viewed in in the museum park.
