Recently, the first grade journeyed to the Newark Museum to experience a planetarium show as well as tour several galleries! In particular, the students were searching for how artists from many times and places around the world have represented motion in their art as well as invite the audience’s eyes and minds to move along with the art.
There was time to review facts, explore new planets, dwarf planets, moons, and stars, and take a sky tour! (Not a lot of photos from inside the planetarium because it was so dark!)
We got to ride in the most beautiful elevator ever! We also looked at vertical and horizontal lines in a set of doors, an ancient wheel from India, and a buffalo blanket painted with a Lakota man’s life story. We also saw a mosaic depicting a sailing ship and many other beautiful pieces, including a mobile by Alexander Calder.
After our museum tour, we had time for lunch and moving our bodies outdoors in the Museum garden and in the park across the street!
