Field Trip Features: Philadelphia Museum of Art and Franklin Institute

Last Friday, July 6, Artology travled to the Philadelphia Museum of Art (PMA).

Once inside the PMA, the Artologists went on an art scavenger hunt throughout the Modern Art (about 18th century to 21st century) galleries.  Ms. L distributed clues that corresponded with works within the galleries.  Using all of their groups’ intellectual and physical might, the Artologists scurried around the museum on a mission to be the first group to find all eight pieces.  Once the scavenger hunt and subsequent picnic lunch were complete, the Artologists had the opportunity to explore areas of the Museum that they were interested in.

On Monday, July 9, Artology traveled to the Franklin Institute to learn more about the theme for this week– Space!

We traveled to the Space Command section of the Institute, saw a movie in the Planetarium about our solar system’s weather, and then were able to explore other parts of the Institute such as the Giant Heart and the steam-engine-powered train.
