Educational Fieldwork to Hagar Qim, Mnajdra Archaeological Park and the Tarxien Temples
Monday the 20th of May 2013 was a special day for the Grade 9 students of San Andrea School since they spent the day visiting some of Malta’s megalithic temples to complement what they had already learnt in class about Maltese prehistory.
We started the day by visiting the Visiting Centre at the Hagar Qim and Mnajdra Archaeological Park. At this visitor centre, the students had the opportunity to learn from the various interactive displays available. The students then proceeded to visit the megalithic temples of Hagar Qim and Mnajdra where they viewed all the various unique features of these UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
In the afternoon, the students visited another world heritage site, the megalithic temples of Tarxien. During their guided tour of this site, the students learnt, amongst other things, about how the site was discovered, who excavated it and the various unique decorative elements of the temple.
This outing was truly enjoyable for the students since it was very informative and fun at the same time.
