Museum Classes in Rostov Schools

29.04.2016

The Museum-Reserve of M.A.Sholokhov, school “Evrika-Razvitiye” named after M.Nagibin and gymnasium 118 of Rostov-on-Don are connected by a long-term cooperation in the frames of educational programs and museum practices “Krayevedeniye” (Local History) and “Vyoshki”. Late in August there was a meeting of the Museum workers and Rostov schoolchildren.

The 6-form pupils took part in the interactive game “Visiting Don Cossacks”. They learned to make ceramic clay articles, make up a fan and played a computer game “In the Country of the Quiet Don”.

At the lessons “Archaeological Finds in the Land of Vyoshenskaya” the 7-form pupils learned about the archaeological investigations in the area of the Upper Don, carried out “archaeological excavations” and tried to work as restorers.

The 8-form pupils took part in the talk «About Books Getting through Centuries», where they learned about the importance of books by M.A.Sholokhov for the soldiers who fought at the fronts of the Great Patriotic War. At the lesson «Filming the Story by M.A.Sholokhov “The Fate of a Man”» the children watched fragments of the film and learned about its creation.

The senior pupils listened to the lecture «Female Images in the Works by M.A.Sholokhov», «“Lovely Look of Nature”. Landscape in the Novel “And Quiet Flows the Don” by M.A.Sholokhov», «Comic Features of Sholokhov’s Personages».

The museum-workers held master-classes, where the 7–8-form pupils learned to make decorations and articles of felt, clay and bast. At the interactive lesson “Post-Office” the schoolchildren tried to write letters with a pen and ink in the way their great-grandparents did.

The program of visiting classes was rich, informative and interesting, and impressed the children, teachers and museum-workers very much.
