Storytime Science for Kids | Exploratorium Online
February 24 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
An event every month that begins at 1:00 pm on day Fourth of the month, repeating until February 28, 2021
Online Event: Join via Facebook or YouTube. Each month, the staff plan a story and complementary activities that can be done at home. Visit the Exploratorium site for information and the supplies needed for the at home activity.
Join us for Storytime Science—a storybook read aloud followed by a simple related activity geared toward very young children.
January: This month, the Exploratorium’s own Vivian Altmann reads Oscar and the Bat: A Book About Sound, written and illustrated by Geoff Waring.
What’s that sound? Oscar can hear it, but who’s making it? Bat shows up to take Oscar on a sound tour of the garden and beyond.
Check out a few quick sound demonstrations with Vivian, then try a sound hunt at home and learn how to make a buzzing bee toy.
February: Exploratorium’s own Vivian Altmann reads Black is a Rainbow Color, written by Angela Joy and illustrated by Ekua Holmes.
Color can be more than paint on a piece of paper. Sometimes color has special meaning. It can describe an emotion, a culture, a history, a connection to family, a way to see ourselves. Black may not be a color of the rainbow we see in the sky or paint on a page, but our activity shows that black is really all the rainbow colors mixed together.
