Field Trips Rock!

My students, who attend the International School of Morocco, are very lucky.  They live in an area (Casablanca, Morocco) that provides us with great field trip opportunities.  We are currently studying Ancient Rome, so yesterday we went to see some Roman ruins and artifacts. 

We started at Chellah, the site of the ancient Roman city of Sala Colonia.  The kids were able to see arches, house walls, a nice Roman road, columns, a bath house and water pipes.

They were also able to see and talk about the “layering” that happens with many ancient ruin sites, as there are distinctly Arab buildings built “on top” of this site.  We were able to look at mosques and mosaics and compare and contrast the Roman architecture and the Arab architecture.

After Chellah, we went over to the Archaeological Museum and saw specific artifacts, collected from the many Roman sites in Morocco, including Volubilis.  We were able to see pottery, jewelry, statues and a great mosaic.

What awesome places do you get to take your students on field trips to?
