Who should come?

Parents and children ages 5-12 (a little younger or older is fine!). 

What is it?

The City Library and NHMU are working together to help kids understand how to think like poets and scientists. The Museum's high school aged interns (from its Youth Teaching Youth program) will lead this program. 

This Month's Theme: Wind

Air is all around us, but it is most noticeable in the form of wind. A light breeze barely moves your clothing, while a strong gust blows the hat right off your head. In this workshop, children learn about wind by observing and exploring it as Gilberto does in the story Gilberto and the Wind.

Poets and Scientists

How can we think like a poet? How can we think like a scientist?
Both poets and scientists
  • Ask questions
  • Use all their senses
  • Make observations
  • Make connections
  • Share what they learned 
Scientists
  • Look for evidence
  • Try to clear up a mystery
  • Share how things are
Poets
  • Make art with words
  • sometimes let a mystery stay a mystery
  • Share how we experience things

We look forward to seeing you and your kids at this month's free event!
