Yesterday that Grade 11 and 12 Spanish classes traveled to the Gardiner Museum in Toronto to take part in both a guided tour and pottery making class. Special exhibits included Mayan, Aztec, Inca and other Meso-American ceramic displays. The classes made their own Meso-American sculptures.
The day was completed with a lunch at Plaza Flamingo and a live Flamenco show. Students received an explanation of the history of Flamenco and were even given a lesson in Flamenco dancing.
Stops included: the Welland Canal (Lock 3 Museum and the Flight Locks); the Morningstar Mill (a gristmill built in 1872); traveling 250 feet above the Whirlpool Rapids on the Spanish Aerocar (a unique opportunity to view the physical geography of Niagara) and a visit to Cherry Avenue Farms est. 1799 to learn about the tender fruit industry in the Niagara Region.
