(SIS) — On Friday, January 10, Saipan International School students from first through sixth grades climbed aboard three large buses for journey to explore the CNMI’s artifacts housed at the NMI Museum of History and Culture. Several classes also ventured out during a break in last Friday’s rain to examine more historical sights across the street at Sugar King Park.

Most of the students reported that they found the Spanish galleon treasure display most interesting, specifically mentioning the gold jewelry and the large, ceramic jugs used for transporting valuables, while others were more fascinated by the war artifacts, particularly the medical kits carried by Japanese and American soldiers. One student was excited by the display showing Chamorro slings and projectiles, having once found one of the antique, stone artifacts while playing on the SIS campus.

The field trip was the culminating activity in a week dedicated to learning about local history, culture, and wildlife as part of a month-long series of four thematic weeks organized around SIS’s hosting over 100 Korean students here for the month of January. SIS full-time students will be working alongside their Korean classmates for the entire month, exploring a different thematic focus each week, learning and creating projects that will be shared over the final few days of the program.
