Description

Snacks and Attacks! Kindergarten - 2nd grade: A workshop all about food. Climb your way up the food chain as we figure out who eats what. Real museum specimens will be our guides to what animals eat. We’ll excavate arrowheads as we explore how ancient humans hunted and “gather” plants to make our snacks.

Archaeology: Design and Engineering: 3rd - 5th grade: From building Mayan pyramids to carrying water up Mesa Verde cliffs; from painting Mimbres pots to weaving Navajo rugs – people have been solving problems in intelligent and beautiful ways for centuries. We’ll use our Ancient Southwest: Peoples, Pottery and Place exhibition as the jumping off point for our creative explorations. Build your own .pyramid, weave a pouch, and see how far (and fast) you can carry water on your head!

Each workshop meets for three hours from 9:00 am - noon at the CU Museum of Natural History on the CU-Boulder Campus. Healthy snacks will be provided.
