5th Graders Tour the City’s Museums

CitySquash 5th graders spent their mid-winter break visiting several different types of museums around Manhattan. On Monday, they toured the Museum of Jewish Heritage, to supplement their completion of the book, Number The Stars. After the guided tour, students met an elderly husband and wife, both of whom survived the Holocaust in Poland. On Tuesday, CitySquashers had a fun-filled though tiresome day at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Their favorite section of the museum was the New American Wing, because they had studied Emanuel Leutze’s piece Washington Crossing the Delaware in school earlier in the month. On Wednesday, students toured the Museum of Art and Design with artist Manuel Acevedo. After the tour he guided them in a hands-on art-making workshop. Finally, on Thursday, students visited El Museo del Barrio in Harlem, and had a guided tour of their newest exhibition, entitled “VOCES Y VISIONES: Gran Caribe.”
