The Berman’s World History Museum provides an opportunity for ninth grade world history students to “Take a trip around the world!” right here in Alabama. Students enjoy the two floors of displays and five exhibits as they complete a scavenger hunt book looking for items they learned about in class throughout the year. Once the students find the items they have to sketch them and then fill in the blanks to complete the captions in their scavenger hunt book. Student favorites usually include Leonardo da Vinci’s leaf gun from Renaissance Italy, the Persian scimitar and the largest piece of the U.S.S. Arizona outside of Hawaii.
Pictured are Anna Casas and Meori Smith, who have found Napoleon’s personal items from the island of St. Helena where he was exiled after his final defeat at Waterloo.
Also pictured are a group of students working on their sketches and captions. You know it is a good field trip when you overhear students say things like, “I love this; this is amazing.”
