A Visit from LACMA

During the LACMA visit...


In February, 2020, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) visited Addams Middle School to provide some great additional resources to my 7th grade World History classes as we complete our studies of the Olmec, Maya, Aztec and Inca tribes of the Americas.


On Block Day, we split each period so that 1/2 of the class went to our Addams Library Media Center where scientists gave us a chance to handle artifacts from the Maya civilization. Since we were handling objects from over 2,000 years ago, we were careful in wearing gloves to handle the ancient artifacts appropriately. After learning about these important products from BCE time, we created our own example of Maya art using modern resources. You will see our beautiful artwork below.

Period 2

The other 1/2 of the class spent the Block period visiting the trailer from LACMA. We first confirmed what we learned about the Maya tribe and the resources that the land provided and what people created with these resources. This included artifacts from the pok-a-tok game and other resources like jade and obsidion. We then spent time creating our own version of artwork from the Maya civilization.


You will see some photos from each period did during their time on Feb. 12 and 13. Next week on Block Day, the two groups will switch their visits to the Library Media Center and to the LACMA trailer.
