Grade 7 visit Plantin-Moretus Museum in Antwerp

Grade 7 students visited the Plantin-Moretus Museum in Antwerp last Wednesday. They had the opportunity to learn about a UNESCO World Heritage site, the original residence and workshop of the Plantin and Moretus publishing dynasty, which presents a history of books, the art of printing and story of a family business tradition. Printing is one of the most innovative endeavours of 16th century Renaissance and Enlightenment Period, the subject of the current Grade 7 MYP Unit in Individuals & Societies. The museum visit linked with Art and Religious Studies units of study.
