The students of 6th grade had the opportunity to visit the Royal Glass Factory of La Granja de San Ildefonso, as part of their Unit of Inquiry “The Order of events brings understanding” discovering how, thanks to King Carlos III, Spain managed to become a world power in terms of the creation of glass.
In this visit they discovered the materials used for the creation of this precious material that we, in our day to day, we call glass. They were also able to see the process of blowing and manufacturing of unique pieces and participated in two glass decoration workshops.
The visit was a success and the students learned firsthand all the artisanal process of glass manufacturing.
