On April 30th, Brooklyn Amity School’s Fourth and Fifth graders boarded the yellow bus and took a trip to Manhattan’s Museum of Natural History. The focus of the trip was an extension of the sculptures the students had been working on in art class. As students visited the North American Mammals wing and Ocean Life exhibit, they were asked to think of the displays and dioramas like giant sculptures. Students observed and compared the animals in various environments and sketched images of what they saw. This trip was a great way to show students the sculptural forms that make up animals at the museum and bring relevance to their sculptural work in the art room.
