Thursdays in July

It is said that young children experience the world and express themselves in a “hundred languages.” Discovery Time utilizes a broad array of these learning languages – including music, art, stories, and creative movement – to connect children to science. Children ages 3 to 6 are developing increasingly complex theories about the world, rapidly gaining language, and learning to work with others. Discovery Time activities are designed by early childhood specialists specifically to nurture and challenge the rapid development of preschool-aged children in a fun, safe, and collaborative learning environment. Discovery Time sparks the interest of science education in young children by teaching them how to explore a broad range of topics with a curious mindset. Each March will have a different focus, ranging from oceans, to space, to physics, to human health and anatomy. You never know what you may learn at Discovery Time!

Children ages 3 to 6 are developing quickly and gaining and mastering skills in a wide variety of domains including language, motor, symbolic representation, and concrete operational thinking. Discovery Time is structured around exploring the scientific method: observing, hypothesizing, testing, and discussing the results! Discovery Time provides open-ended activities that are accessible and engaging for children across a spectrum of development, and helps generally prepare them for the more structured learning environments they will encounter in elementary school.

This month Discovery Time is getting WILD! Wild animals, that is. Come join us as we learn all about the animal kingdom in July. Studying zoology can be a wonderful way to get kids interested in biology. Participants will learn the similarities and differences between mammals, birds, fish, reptiles, and amphibians. Did you know that chimpanzees and humans share 98.8% of the same DNA? Did you know that frogs and humans both use two lungs to breathe? There’s more to explore in Discovery Time! Discovery time is recommended for children aged 3-6, caregivers, and siblings.

Hands-on activities include:

  • Playing a game where we match animals to their homes.
  • Creating an animal kingdom classification chart with art supplies.
  • Marching in an animal parade where we roar like lions and stomp like elephants!
