Pink 2014 just had their field trip last Friday, November 10, 2012 and it was A MA ZING. Its one experience I will never forget and will truly cherish. To tell you the truth, I’ve been to all of these sites even before the field trip, so I didn’t think I’d enjoy it as much as I did. I’ve learned a lot of things during this day and now I’m here to share it with you! :)
I’d like to introduce you to III-6! The best, brightest and funniest class you will ever meet :) They may look crazy because they are…. in a good way. HAHAHAHA. (i think)
These two were my “buddy mates” for the day and well kind of the whole year. LOL. They helped me a lot during the field trip and brought great food. mehehehehe.
The first stop, was the MIND MUSEUM!!!! WOOOHOOOOO!!! I’ve discovered A LOT of new things from here and these are just a few of them…..
The vessel behind Sally and I is called the Chinese Junk. It was used by the Chinese for trading with the natives of the Philippine islands during the 19th century. This gave the Song dynasty great naval strength. This fought in naval battles with some countries like Britain, America and France.
Now on the other hand, this vessel is called the Galleon. This was used by the spaniards during the Manila-Acapulco trade. It was designed to protect treasure fleets against the constant threat of pirate ships, and to withstand long voyages and storms. But due to the high superstructure this made the ship slow and difficult to sail.
[a closer look at the Galleon]
Here is an instrument, called an Astrolabe, used by early explorers to measure the distance of any celestial bodies for navigation. It is composed of flat discs that stack atop each other, representing certain latitudes and bearing movable images of celestial bodies.
The model behind my pretty face is called, Giant Orrey. Nicolaus Copernicus demonstrated this model in 1543, stating that the sun is the center of the solar system.
Galileo, a renowned scientist, proposed the Notion of Acceleration which promotes that the speed of falling objects follows a mathematical law.
One of the three laws of Johannes Kepler’s Laws of Planetary Motion states that the orbit of every planet is an ellipse with the sun at a focus.
Below are some more pictures from the MIND MUSEUM. :)
And last but not the least, my favourite pic of the entire field trip…
WAHAHAHAHAHAHA :) <3<3<3<3<3<3
Knowing MC, we didn’t fail to visit a church. So our next stop…. SAN AGUSTIN CHURCH!!!! :—-)
Basing on the pictures above we can therefore conclude the Romanesque architecture would fall under this church. This is because of its thick walls and arches. :)
As seen from the image above, this shows the expedition of Urdaneta to Cebu spreading Christianity which affected the Philippine’s future from there on out.
One of the many religious orders that came to the Philippines are none other than the….. FRANSISCANS!!! YAAAAY! :——-)
Other countries that Spain went to is Japan (first pic) and Peru (second pic). The reactions of the natives towards their arrival were either open to have them or very violent.
Spain is a very large part of Philippine history. During the Age of Exploration, it was Spain’s mission to discover new lands to retrieve some spices and spread Christianity. In their quest to do that, they stumbled to the Philippines and basically shaped the majority of our culture.
Science and history have two very different definitions. However, they also have one very distinct similarity. Knowledge. When one discovers something that has happened in the past, with the help of science, one may also look deeper in to that discovery and learn something entirely different.
