July Science Quest: Literacy Building
For July, we're going to build upon our literacy with everyday objects and toys found around your house! Try to recreate a book cover or scene from your favorite story, especially if it's a fairy tale, folk tale, legend, or myth! You can star in it, if you want, or include your household members too.
1) Do you have a LEGO Harry Potter or Star Wars set you've not put together yet? Or try other things around your house and yard: sticks, leaves, grass, stones, chalk on the sidewalk, Tinker Toys, Lincoln Logs, magnets, popsicle sticks, Play Dough, sand box, paint, cotton balls, rubber bands, paperclips, tooth picks, etc.
3) Draw a picture or comic book, or stage a photograph, of your favorite fairy tale, nursery rhyme, or folk tale. For inspiration, see https://www.nypl.org/blog/2020/04/21/nypl-bookcoverdouble-challenge or the images below!
Email the picture to email@example.com or post it on our Facebook page and tag it as #STEAMatHome.
The pictures will be collected and voted upon on our Facebook page by our patrons. The event ends July 31. The winner will get a bag of free books!
