Presented by the Master Gardeners of the Rockland County Cornell Cooperative Extension, this STEAM-oriented, multi-faceted, educational, and fun-packed hour program is geared for children entering 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 environments. Tropical birdwatcher Karen will next take the children on a magical virtual 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 goody bags of jungle-themed information and pencil/paper activities.
