Join a Virtual Playdate for Kids with “History Explorers Club,” Nov. 18November 5, 2020
Gather up, History Explorers Club, as we celebrate Native American Heritage Month with our friends from Ganondagan State Historic Site on Wednesday, November 18, from 3:30-4:30 p.m.
In this live “virtual play date,” kids will meet with special guests Tonia Galban (Mohawk, Bear Clan) and Gabriele Papa (Seneca, Hawk Clan) to learn about traditional Haudenosaunee storytelling, an essential part of Haudenosaunee culture. Each club meeting includes a different activity to tie in with the meeting’s topic.
“As families are trying to find new ways to learn online and discover fun things to do at home together, History Explorers Club is a great space to do that,” said Rebecca Franco, the Museum’s Family Programs Manager. “These live virtual playdates are where kids get to discover the people, places, and events of the American Revolution through games, art, stories, and other activities in a way that’s fun and interactive.”
History Explorer’s Club is best enjoyed by ages 7-11, but is fun for all kids. Registration is $4 for Museum Members and $7 for general admission. Tickets can be purchased here.
The next History Explorers Club meeting will take place on Wednesday, Dec. 16, 2020 from 3:30 – 4:30 p.m. and will explore a mysterious snowy journey by Henry Knox, an officer in the Continental Army, in December of 1775. Participants will discover the story of Knox’s journey, explore a miniature diorama, and look at replica objects in order to solve how exactly he managed to move 59 cannons in the middle of winter to help free the city of Boston.
