A Day at the Museum
On Wednesday, May 18th 2016, the Dwight EAL students, grades 6-11, went on a field trip to experience the incredible art and culture located within the Metropolitan Museum of Art. This field trip allowed students to learn about the works of art in the museum, many of which had been studied through class activities and assignments on the 82nd-and-fifth.metmuseum.org website. Students went on a “scavenger hunt” to try to find as many of the pieces of art discussed during these class activities. Since our international students are often not in many of the same classes, it was also a special afternoon where we were able to bring together our EAL student community. Students worked, laughed, and explored together — while sharing their thoughts and opinions, all in English.
Afterwards, students spent some time together walking through Central Park before returning to school.
