Adventures in Science
Whales: Giants of the Deep (Grades 1 and 2)
September 22, 2013 - October 6, 2013
Whales are magnificent organisms! Explore the extraordinary adaptations whales have developed to survive in their watery environments, and why they are so important to the ocean ecosystems where they live. Go into the Museum’s halls and meet scientists to learn why whale populations have been declining, what protections humans have put in place, and how some whale species have recovered because of these protections.
Three Sundays: September 22, 29, and October 6
Time: 1:30 – 3:00 PM
Please Note: This caregiver-child workshops are structured to provide a unique opportunity for caregiver-child teams to experience science at the Museum and learn together. Each child must be accompanied by one adult. Only a registered child and his/her caregiver may attend with no additional guests.
