DISCOVERING MEDIEVAL CASTLES AROUND US

In early March Grade 5 took part in a field trip to visit the medieval castles of Friuli Venezia Giulia. In the morning they visited the archeological museum in Attimis. Here the students were involved in interesting explanations presented by Claudio, a young archeologist. He illustrated how the main activities of that period used to be carried out. After a long but pleasant walk, students reached the castle of Cergneu where they enjoyed a wonderful view. In the afternoon they went to the castle of Partistagno. Children really appreciated the field trip since it was connected to the topics they had been studying in Social Studies.
