NOVEMBER YOUNG DISCOVERS' SCHEDULE
Week 1 (Nov 1-3): Leaves changing color is a sure sign of the seasons changing. Learn why leaves turn yellow, orange, and red this time of year and create your own autumn tree.
Week 2 (Nov 8-10): Rain and snow are beginning to fall, bringing water to the land. Our world is made up of watersheds which funnel the water into rivers, lakes, and oceans - but they are in danger! Learn about these threats while creating your own watershed model.
Week 3 (Nov 15-18): The Method of Mythbusters - Learn the way of the Mythbuster's by understanding the scientific method and engineering a stable structure that can withstand an earthquake. Can yours stand up to our earthquake simulation?
Week 4 (Nov 22, 24): Turkey Day Counting Game - Make your own game to play with your family during this holiday season. This Thanksgiving themed game will help your young discoverers with counting, color recognition and fine motor skills.
Week 5 (Nov 29-Dec 1): Salt Crystal Leaves - In this STEAM activity, we'll be bringing the snow indoors and learning about supersaturated solutions! Learn about how you can create your own crystals using everyday household items to make a snowy leaf decoration.
