Wie kent het lied Aan de Amsterdamse grachten nou niet? De grachten van onze stad maken al honderden jaren indruk op onze bewoners en bezoekers. Het is dan ook niet zo gek dat ze op de UNESCO Werelderfgoedlijst staan.

Inhoud lesprogramma


Het lesprogramma Wereldgrachten bestaat uit:


  1. Wereldgrachten in de klas: een voorbereidende interactieve les in de klas. Hierbij wordt met behulp van de online tool Groeistad de geschiedenis van de Amsterdamse Grachten tot leven gebracht. Leerlingen leren over werelderfgoed, UNESCO en de ontstaansgeschiedenis van de Amsterdamse grachten in de 17e eeuw. De les is een voorbereiding op de excursie.
  2. Wereldgrachten op excursie: hier gaan de leerlingen naar het centrum van Amsterdam met als hoogtepunt de rondvaarttocht over de grachten én een bezoek aan het grachtenhuis Museum van Loon.
  3. Wereldgrachten over het slavernijverleden of duurzaamheid: een derde verdiepende les gegeven door een van onze ervaren museumdocenten. Deze afsluitende les vindt plaats in de klas met een thema naar keuze. Deze les is optioneel, maar wij raden het ten zeerste aan voor het leergebied Burgerschap.

De drie lesonderdelen worden gegeven door onze ervaren museumdocenten. In het schooljaar 2022-2023 kan je een van deze verdiepingslessen gratis bijboeken.

Groeistad (Growth City)

Make heritage lessons extra engaging with the Groeistad (Growth City) program! Groeistad is a digital map of Amsterdam filled with accessible information about architecture, art, unusual finds, and different neighborhoods. By superimposing historical maps of old Amsterdam onto the present-day view, unique insights into the past emerge. The students expand the map by adding their own photos, stories, and routes. In this way, heritage at once becomes very personal and fascinating!

The fun way in which Groeistad is integrated in the lesson ensures that kids want to get involved. They will learn plenty about the surroundings where they live and are encouraged to work independently.

2.5 Heritage and Identity Learning Trajectory

The Amsterdam Museum is actively developing an ongoing heritage and identity learning trajectory for primary education in collaboration with partners in the city. This is based on the conviction that bringing the history and identity of Amsterdam to life promotes greater mutual understanding among its residents. The curriculum also deals with the legacy of this history today. The history of one’s own surroundings plays a major role.

Intended outcome of this learning trajectory:
  • Increased knowledge of the city
  • Connection between students
  • Developing tools and skills to have exchanges about identity
