Preview of 2013 Summer Reading Program
in the Kent Children’s Room
Almost 200 children participate every year in the Collaborative Summer Library Program. This national program helps motivate children to read, enabling them to maintain their reading skills during summer vacation. This year we will explore the wonders under our feet as we “Dig into Reading.” We will excavate dinosaur bones, plant a butterfly garden, dig up some classic children’s stories, make some fun crafts and read about all things underground.
This hands-on program gives children ages 4-8 a chance to think like paleontologists and explore the world of dinosaurs. Children will interact with real and model fossils, study a simulated dinosaur trackway and excavate a replica field site.
Mad Science educators will take us on an underground adventure to learn about the science that happens beneath our feet! Through an interactive presentation, we will learn about the layers of the earth by turning an audience member into an “Earth Layer Cake”. We will see a simulated geyser, learn why Stalagmites are so cool, and even watch a volcanic explosion.
