Family Reading and Science Program
Life through the Ages
FREE Family Science Workshops and Reading program!
Each year the University of Michigan Exhibit Museum of Natural History and the Ann Arbor District Library coordinate their efforts to offer a Winter Family Reading and Science Program. This year’s theme, Life through the Ages, provides families with opportunities to read and learn together about the fossil record and geological time, with an in-depth look at many fascinating organisms. In addition to Winter Family Reading Programs with incentives for participation, and the acquisition of new books related to the history of life through time, many libraries in Washtenaw and Wayne counties will host free family science workshops led by Exhibit Museum educators.
Research shows that children learn more about science when a parent or adult companion participates in their science explorations, and these workshops are a great place to learn! Thanks to the generous support of Pfizer and local libraries, these workshops are free for participating families. This program is ideal for children ages 6-11. Hope to see you there!
Workshop 1- Phenomenal Paleozoic: Out of the Water
