Terracotta Warriors of the First Empire

Late in April, the Third, Fourth and Fifth graders ventured beyond Tukwila on a field trip to the Pacific Science Center and ended up on the opposite side of the globe. They had the rare opportunity to view the ancient terracotta warriors from China. This amazing adventure started with an Imax movie about the dig sites and how the first emperor of Qin united the ancient countries that ultimately became China. The students had a great time in the exhibit looking at all the different artifacts from China that include: warriors, horses, bronze animals and other bronze weapons from the era. These artifacts are over 2,000 years old and provided our students with a glimpse into ancient history.
