We had a great day a couple weeks ago (already?) traveling to downtown Portland to supplement our studies on ancient China. We visited the Ancient Asian Art and European Art wing of the Portland Art Museum, had lunch at the Golden Horse Seafood Restaurant in Chinatown, took a docent-guided tour at the Classical Chinese Garden, and finished the day with a visit to Multnomah County’s Central Library.
Last week, Dr. Fruehauf also visited our class for a presentation on ancient China. The students found it interesting and I am challenging them to connect their expert China topic to the presentation.
A special thank you to the parent volunteers that joined us on our field trip: Debbie Vasen, Sharon Hocking and Angela Davis as well as Sheron and Heiner Fruehauf. You really have helped enrich this unit for our class.
I will post upcoming important dates later this week. Students have their own calendars that we have updated in class as well.
