Osaka Field Trip

On Thursday, we went on a field trip to two different museums in Osaka: 
the Osaka Castle Museum and Osaka History Museum. 

We went to explore the concept of how different places change over time. 

It was quite an adventure, since we took three different trains from Rokko Island!

Some people got to sit at the front of the train!

Once we arrived in Osaka, we walked through Osaka Castle Park to get to the first museum. 

Look at all the colourful leaves! 

First, we sat down for some snacks. 

At the Osaka Castle Museum, we headed to the top floor where we could see the entire city of Osaka!

As we viewed the city towards different directions, we made connections to what we explored in math about north, south, east, and west. 

In the museum, we saw some videos explaining how people used to live in the past. 

In the Osaka History Museum, we got to walk through replicas of actual places in Japan in the past. 

It felt like we were travelling through time!

Afterwards, we had lunch on some giant rocks we found. 

It was a day filled with learning and lots of walking!
