Toddlers and preschoolers are invited to the free interactive learning series, “Little Kids, Big World,” at 10:30 a.m. on Mondays at the North Dakota Heritage Center & State Museum. These fun, hands-on 30-minute programs introduce children to North Dakota’s fascinating history. All children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. The Sept. 10 program will feature “Build a Dinosaur” as participants make a fearsome carnivore with sharp teeth, a four-legged herbivore, or mix it up—all with easy-to-use paper and glue. On Sept. 17, “Calling All Cowboys and Cowgirls” will present games related to cowhands and horses in celebration of our new exhibit, The Horse in North Dakota. “Little Geologist” on Sept. 24 will feature geologist Lorraine Manz from the North Dakota Geological Survey for hands-on fun and learning with rocks. The programs will be led by Stephanie Schick, a gallery guide at the North Dakota Heritage Center & State Museum. Schick is a graduate of Northern Arizona University who previously worked as an educator at the National Mississippi River Museum & Aquarium in Dubuque, Iowa. Schick, who has a passion for history, science, and education, loves to travel and has taught in schools in Kenya and Egypt. Participants are asked to meet at the east entrance information desk at the ND Heritage Center & State Museum. For more information, contact Erik Holland, curator of education, 701.328.2792.
