On Tuesday, November 3rd, the Senior AP English class had the opportunity to go to the Children’s Museum of Indianapolis. The class had been studying Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales and had researched and presented information on different pilgrimages made around the world.
The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis currently has a “Sacred Journeys” exhibit on display sponsored by the National Geographic. Students were able to see artifacts, clothing and art from many different sacred places.
The following pictures depict students hearing about Mecca, Saudi Arabia and The Great Mosque of Mecca in Islam. The Kabba, inside The Great Mosque, is Islam’s most sacred site. According to Muslim traditions, this ancient temple was rebuilt by Ibrahim (Father Abraham) and later restored as a place of worship by Mohamed.
