Video Webinar for Families: Natural History at Home - At Home in the Rainforest CanopyKids & Families, Webcasts & Online
Saturday, July 17, 2021, 11 – 11:45am EDT
The exploration of natural history doesn't have to just happen at the museum - it can happen in your home too!
Join museum educators as they walk your family through science skill-building activities and ways to explore the natural world and collections.
This program is all about the unique adaptations animals have to survive in their habitat. Museum technician Ingrid Rochon will guide us through an exploration of the canopy layer of the rainforest in Panama. She will help us practice identifying how the canopy meets the basic needs of the animals found there. Our educators will then lead your family through an activity for how to plan for and recreate your own habitat model during the program!
Please have the following materials ready:
- A piece of blank paper
- Your choice of coloring supplies (crayons, markers, paint, colored pencils, etc.)
- Tape or Glue
