Friends School of Minnesota middle school students went on a field trip to the Minneapolis Institute of Art one morning in January.
Teacher and parent chaperones had small groups of 3-5 students to tour the museum. Everyone went on a variety of tours and explored on their own. Students had the option to wear pedometers and averaged over 2,000 steps in the museum!
“I have been going to MIA since I was little. I always like walking around and looking at the art. When we were there last week, I thought the big barbed wire cube that we saw in the modern art area was cool.” – Conner, 5th grade
“It was cool that we were able to go back into the MIA director’s office to see a painting that was not on display (the comic picture from the Love and Scandal showing). It was fun learning the story behind each exhibit. We should go again!” – 6th grader
