There were different activities for the grade to complete in groups. In the Palace of Culture and Science, students had the opportunity first to examine the architecture of the building and relate it to the things they have learned in history class about architectural style.

On the 4th floor of the Palace of Culture, students saw a new exhibition on the innovative ways of using any kind of polymer waste and crafting it into fashion or art. This exhibition’s purpose is to inspire the world and people to find ways to recycle food waste and other materials. According to Ms. Barbra, the tour guide, mass production and polymers from factory waste have caused entire lakes to disappear.

After the provided lunch, the students made their way to the National Museum, or Muzeum Narodowe w Warszawie, to view authentic Medieval paintings, altars, and sculptures up close in detail. They also viewed a wide showcase of Chinese artwork and artifacts dating back as far as 5,000 years.

According to 9th-grade student Taylor Bata, the trip was very cold, but also quite informative. She liked how both science and history class were integrated into the day, despite nearly getting frostbite.

Jorre, learning.
