China's Terracotta Army

Yesterday we took a fieldtrip to the High Museum to see the exhibit of China's Terracotta Army. It is only here until April 19th and it was apparent with all the visitors. To prepare for our fieldtrip the kids have been studying the First Emperor of China. We have been reading about him in our history book, Story of the World. We also watched quite a bit of the documentary, which we were able to find on YouTube.

It was an amazing exhibit, we could not believe the detail of the army men, made of terracotta. Also interesting, were other artifacts on display that they have found, most of them were for what they believed would be the First Emperor's afterlife.

Here is a group shot with our friends before we entered the High.
