Cultural trip to the Natural Science Museum

  • 20/12/2018

Last Tuesday, two of the classes in our year visited The National Natural Science Museum, where we could observe an exhibition of an American photographer, Joel Sartore. This exhibition is called Photo Ark and the photographer has been taking photos of animals in danger of extinction for around twenty-five years.

Some of them are even extinguished now. It helped us to understand how the world doesn´t last forever and that we have to care about our planet.In addition, it also revealed us how many of the species have slowly recovered and are even getting out of danger. The display was amazing as we could also get to know the different animals that we share this world with.

On the second part of the trip we did two things: firstly we went on a tour around the archaeological part of the Museum, we were explained how wildlife was millions of years before humans arrived to this planet. I personally found this part of the tour very interesting, because we were shown an amazing exhibition of the different types of dinosaurs that lived many millions of years ago. Secondly, we had to rebuild a human skeleton which was a difficult challenge but with our knowledge of Biology (and with some help of our Biology teacher) we completed the whole skeleton.

In conclusion, this cultural trip was fun and fascinating. Ignacio Vázquez-Guillén.
