Summer Library Outreach
Working Together: Amazing Animal Builders
CMNH Educators will be on the road this summer for our Summer Library Program! Children will investigate the river ecosystem and learn about the animal builders who live there and work together. This program includes 4 stations to explore followed by a fun, hands-on STEAM project to take home! Please note that this program is about animals, but there are NO live animals.
Join us to learn about the river ecosystem as we investigate models of structures made by some of nature's very best architects and engineers! From mammals to birds - participants will get to examine and hypothesize about these builders, think about how they work together, and explore models of the incredible structures they create.
A museum educator will lead children in a hands-on exciting, informative presentation - with a focus on the food web, river ecosystem, and the way animals fit into their niche within it. Children will explore four activity stations and guess which animal or type of animal built the model structure. At the end, our educator will reveal the answers, and share some fun facts about each builder. Children will also learn about how people work with wildlife to create a better ecosystem- by building!
This hour-long program will wrap-up with every participant building their own mini osprey nest platform that will actually hold weight! Children will have a chance to test and re-design their creation. Children can also make osprey nests and a mini bird craft, perfect for younger children.
