Young historians were awarded in Chersonese Tauride
The final lesson was held in the museum-reserve as part of the educational subscription “Russia is my history. Lessons from Living History. 12 teams fought in an intellectual battle and took part in master classes, summarizing their knowledge about the city of two millennia. More than 450 students of the second — sixth grades from 15 schools in Sevastopol visited Tauric Chersonesos for six months, learning the secrets of its history. For eight lessons, the children carefully examined the Antique and Byzantine expositions of the Museum-Reserve, studied the architecture of St. Vladimir Cathedral, learned about the life and reign of Grand Duke Vladimir, and even tried to play the harp. The schoolchildren were told about the role of Chersonese — Kherson — Korsun in the history of our state and had a tour dedicated to the Christian monuments of the ancient city.
Today’s quiz was the bright end of the subscription. Children from 12 teams answered questions about the founding of Chersonese, about the occupations of its inhabitants, about the architecture of Christian churches located here, about the baptism of Prince Vladimir and the role of this significant event in the formation of the Russian state. The most cohesive team that showed deep knowledge of the history of the ancient city and scored the most points was the group from school No. 6. The winners received a prize in the form of a trip around the Crimea, and all other participants received diplomas and gratitude— told the press service of Tauric Chersonesos.
Fascinating master classes helped make the final lesson even more interesting, during which the children learned how to write words in ancient Greek and Cyrillic letters, as well as how to create and decorate gingerbread cookies in the shape of the famous Foggy Bell of Tauric Chersonese.
Congratulations to all participants of the museum and educational subscription “Russia is my history. Living History Lessons” with the completion of the program! We are sure that the guys learned a lot of interesting things, broadened their horizons, made new friends and felt like a part of the history of Tauric Chersonesos, Sevastopol and their native country. We invite young researchers to continue to study the past within the walls of the museum-reserve and the ancient city, which holds so many mysteries— noted in the press service of the museum-reserve «Tauric Chersonesos».
