New Partnership with Guggenheim Begins for Grade 2
Led by a museum educator, the boys first gathered in the rotunda of this architectural wonder and talked about the various shapes they could see within the museum, as well as how Francis Lloyd Wright was inspired by his love of nature.
When asked to comment about the shape of the building itself, boys said it brought to mind "a snake coil," an "upside down ice cream cone," and "tornadoes."
Partnerships like this enable boys to be exposed to teachers beyond the classroom, which promotes a different type of questioning and intellectual curiosity.
