A Dog’s Life

Ever wonder what life is like for a dog? “Become” a dog and discover the world through new eyes. Are these new dog eyes color blind? Were dogs always just our loyal pets? Find the answer to this and many more questions as you live your best life, a dog’s life.
=

Loco for Locomotives

Before we could travel to other states by plane, the railway was the main mode of transport. We will recreate what this was like in the 1800s and be transported back in time—just don’t forget your ticket!
=

Frozen

This solid state of liquids, is also a Disney hit movie that took the world by “storm!” Everyone fell in love with the two royal sisters of Arendale, Elsa and Anna. But is Arendale a real place? Not exactly…time to cool off, show up in your favorite “Frozen” gear, and find out more about the inspiration for the setting of this movie phenomenon!
=

Mr. Rogers Revisits

“Kindness is Cool” has become a popular logo on clothing. Videos of people showing kindness to those less fortunate have gone viral. #BeKind21 was created by the Born This Way Foundation (Lady Gaga) to encourage people to report on 21 acts of kindness that they have participated in. So, Safari Kid will join in on this journey of kindness, discuss why peer support is so important, and brainstorm ways we can be a “good neighbor.” With parent permission, we will post pictures showing off our good deeds on https://kindnessiscool.org/wall

Shipwrecked

Imagine you have been deserted on an island with no other people on it, like Maui was in the movie Moana. Is deserted island-living a paradise or a prison? How would it be to not have electricity or running water? Test your survival skills by designing a model boat. Will it float? We shall see! If it doesn’t you need a Plan B—what can you find on the island to help you survive?
=

Holiday Seussical

First, enjoy the works of Dr. Seuss and discuss similarities between his classics—the rhyming, the made-up creatures, etc. Then learn about holidays that aren’t as common in the US as Christmas. Put these two together to create your own rhyming masterpiece that uses a holiday you have learned about as part of the setting, just like “The Grinch” uses Christmas.
=

Monster Mash

Lately there have been multiple movies that have been released about the Yeti, or Abdominal Snowman, but how did the stories of these mythical creature originate? What about other mythical creatures such as Nessie, the Loch Ness Monster? What about Big Foot or The Chupacabra? Find out all you can about these legendary beasts and then come up with your own monster myth and model to share with the class!

Learn about the two states not attached to the mainland of America—Hawaii and Alaska. After learning about both, you will choose the state you would want to visit and plan a one-week vacation.
=

King for a Day

What would it be like to be a leader? Why do some countries have kings, Prime Ministers and/or Presidents while others have Dictators? Learn about some of the current leaders of our world. Then ask yourself, if you could be a leader, what kind of leader would you like to be?
=

Wild West

Get out those pans and let’s find some gold! What was the Gold Rush of the 1840s and 1850s like? Join us on a wild ride as we attempt to recreate this interesting time in California’s past.
=

Jungle Cruise

Many of us have taken this classic Disney ride, but is this what an actual jungle is like? Look at pictures of scenes from the ride and decide together what stories are being told. Then learn about the real jungles of the world. How do the two compare? It’s a jungle out there!
