*CANCELLED* Special Kid Zone with TYLER ARBORETUM

*CANCELLED* Special Kid Zone with TYLER ARBORETUM

Kids in Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades are invited to a very special Kid Zone today with the folks from Tyler Arboretum.

To celebrate Longwood Garden's Community Read program, we will share The Enormous Potato retold by Aubrey Davis.  Afterwards, we will learn how a garden ecosystem similarly works together to support the growth of the potato. Student scientists will explore the importance of soil and the critters that live in it as we explore our live worm bin. Then we’ll discover how all of the parts of the potato plant work together, too. We’ll do an illuminating experiment to discover the power of potatoes and how this nutritious food can help us grow. Each student will wrap up the program by planting their very own potato eye to grow and experiment with at home.

FREE guest pass tickets to Longwood Gardens will be raffled.  Children MUST be in attendance to qualify.

Parents of children ages 8 and under must remain in the library during the program.

Registration is required.  PLEASE only register children in K-5th grades.  Adults do NOT need to register.
