Friday, October 2: Bugs in Fall
Meet some live bugs and worms that are preparing to spend winter buried deep in the soil, in rotten logs, or under water, or maybe even in your basement. You also can see and touch preserved bugs, plus egg cases, cocoons, and other shelters made by this summer's bugs.

Friday, October 9: Reptiles and Amphibians in Fall
Meet some live and preserved amphibians and reptiles at our museum table, including a frog skeleton, turtle shells, and x-rays of reptiles and amphibians. Then help our plastic and plush turtles, snakes, and lizards find safe places to spend the winter in the Great Outdoors exhibit or on the play-dough table.

Friday, October 16: Mammals and Birds in Fall
Help plush birds and mammals prepare for winter in the Wonder Works orchard and Great Outdoors exhibit. You can also touch real bird feathers and mammal furs, make bird and mammal tracks, and see what kinds of foods animals eat to fatten up for fall migration or to survive a cold Chicago winter.

Friday, October 23: Sea Life: Sea Shells
Find out what lives year round in the salty sea, which never freezes except in the far north and south. You can also sift shells from sand, make a shell collection and a shell craft, and see and sort colorful shells from around the world. You also can touch and talk about larger shell, corals, and sea stars on the museum table and play with plastic and plush sea life in the Great Outdoors and at the play-dough table.

Friday, October 30: Bones and Skeletons for Halloween
Get ready for Halloween by discovering bones and skeletons! Find out which animals have bones and what their bones look and feel like. Then play with plastic and plush versions of animals with bones. You also can discover skeletal decorations and costumes designed for Halloween, plus decorated sugar skulls made to celebrate Day of the Dead.
