Minneapolis Institute of Arts

We had the wonderful opportunity to visit the Minneapolis Institute of Arts on Thursday to help bring our animal and continent study to a close.  We started with a tour, looking at pieces from across the globe that featured mammals, insects, fish, reptiles, amphibians, and birds.

Gold earrings from South America featuring monkeys
Creation piece from Australia with fish
Drum from Australia with reptiles
Sitting in thought in front of a crane screen from Asia
Firespitter mask from Africa featuring elements of a boar, an antelope and more
Caduceus from Europe with snakes and wings
Japanese samurai armor with praying mantis on the helmet
After our tour, we enjoyed a bag lunch and broke into groups to look for animal groups across the whole museum.  It was a blast!  Thank you to all our parent volunteers! We definitely could not do it without you!
