TWO's Day Celebration

This event has already taken place. Click here for the latest events.

February 22, 2022 is 2-22-22! It’s Two’s Day! Join Alley Pond Environmental Center to celebrate.  Have fun with symmetry using legos to create symmetric animals (seeing double!).  Working in teams, participants will be challenged to build a boat that will float using only TWO materials.  Material will be provided. The boats will then be tested to see which ones can float with 22 paper clips added.  The workshop includes a double bubble graphic organizer lesson comparing arachnids vs. insects.  Of course, live arachnids and insects will enhance the class. Prize awarded to participant wearing the most creative TWO’S DAY outfit – let’s see what you got. (think Taco Tuesday, Terrible Twos…)
