How do you explain a big idea like liberty to little learners? Put it into a story hour!
Our Read & Romp programs introduce children ages 2-6 to the same four core Museum themes found in our guided tour. Little learners will explore big ideas like appreciating diversity, resolving conflicts respectfully, balancing rights with responsibilities, and becoming heroes of liberty through picture books that champion heroic character traits like empathy, responsibility, and respect. Your students will enjoy a full hour of storytelling, art, music, and dance that not only supports the development of proud and confident children, but also gives your little learners the social and emotional learning tools they need to become young heroes!
To experience Read & Romp in the Museum’s galleries, join us every other Monday from January through May 2020 from 10:30-11:30am! Read & Romp is FREE with general Museum admission.
