DescriptionMarch 4: Animals in Spring
Find out how spring begins for wild animals. Early birds are flying north in March, some early frogs may sing, and the first spring butterflies may fly if it's warm enough. We'll meet some animals that wake up as the soil warms, including baby worms and pill bugs. We'll also have live tadpoles and frogs and worms on hand, plus both living and preserved insects. Search for plastic and plush bugs, birds, mammals, and reptiles that spent the winter in the Great Outdoors exhibit, then make footprints in our pretend mud at the play-dough table.

March 11: Transportation Works
Today we celebrate the winds of March by playing with air-powered toys! Moving air can power helicopters, boats, and many other kinds of vehicles. At this week's program you can launch a paper helicopter, drop a parachute, fly a paper airplane, release a balloon-powered car, and help the wind blow sailboats across the water. You can also make you own burst of wind suing an empty plastic jug or with our more powerful air cannon.

March 18: Let's Do Geology
This week's geologic theme is Rivers and Currents. You might get a little wet as you make rivers and currents in the water tables in the art room. Can you make a wind-powered boat, or one that keeps floating in rough Water? We will also play with pretend water using toy boats on the train table and plastic water creatures in blue play dough.

March 25: Electric Toys and Magnets
Today's focus will be on current electricity, as we make electric circuits that light bulbs, run a motor, or play music. You can also play with toys powered by batteries and take a turn as engineer with our O-scale electric railroad. We will peek inside some of the battery-powered toys to figure out how they work. Hint: Their motors will have magnets! There will be lots of magnetic construction materials to build with, plus magnets to explore the art-room sandbox-see what sticks to magnets, and what does not.

This activity occurs every Friday in March from 10am to Noon
