“Francysk Skaryna, the Belarusian First Printer,” a regular class of the series “On a Visit to Books,” took place in the Book Museum, on June 20.
The meeting in the museum turned into a fascinating conversation. Studying the map, the children “traveled” with Francysk Skaryna to Europe, performed creative tasks and played games. The goal of the classes is not only to discover scientific facts for boys and girls, but also encourage them to learn new subject matter and appreciate the knowledge.
The National Library of Belarus keeps the enlightener’s original publications. The children had a unique opportunity to see the books, printed by Skaryna 500 years ago in Prague.
At the end the children solved puzzles about the first printer’s life and work.
