About This Activity

Preschool and kindergarten students will enjoy a fun-filled day learning about the invention of the compass, starting with the first stone devices from the Han Dynasty in China around 300 BCE. Students will explore the various types of compasses, including ancient stone and iron compasses, as well as modern dry and liquid-filled compasses. They will also make maps and a field journal to record their explorations. Each student will take home a new compass with instructions for use to share with their families at home. Games and indoor and outdoor activities will be offered, as well as a walk to Taney Park, weather permitting. A mid-morning snack, including a beverage, will be provided. The program will run from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., with drop-off available in the yard beginning at 8:00 a.m. (at no extra charge). Please pack a lunch (including a beverage) in a disposable bag. For the safety of our students, please DO NOT INCLUDE PEANUT BUTTER or any nuts in your child’s lunch. ** Extended day is available from 3:00 p.m. - 5:30 p.m. for an additional $25. A late-afternoon snack and choice activities will be provided. The program is limited to 40 students, on a first-come, first-served basis. WE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ACCEPT REGISTRATIONS AFTER Monday, October 3. Pick-up time is 3:00 p.m. for the regular program and 5:30 p.m. for the extended day. Students who are not picked-up at 3:00 p.m. will be automatically registered for extended day ($25 per child). Any students who are picked-up after 5:30 p.m. will be charged $25 per child for the first fifteen minutes, and then $30 for each fifteen minutes after 5:45 p.m.
