Event description:

Presented by the Master Gardener Volunteers of Cornell Cooperative Extension of Rockland County, this STEAM-oriented, multifaceted educational, and fun packed hour program is geared for grades 1-4.

Children will be introduced to seven exotic, strange, and colorful rainy jungle birds after they have brainstormed what is necessary for any winged creatures to adapt to their environment. Tropical birdwatcher Karen will take the children on a magical journey where they will learn the legend of a tiny hummingbird who becomes king of Guatemala. The program concludes with a fast moving, interactive game of Jungle Jumble where pairs of children try to reconstruct these exotic birds from puzzle pieces and match them with their correct bird songs.

All program participants will receive good bags of jungle themed information and pencil/paper activities. Registration is required.
