Connect literacy to STEAM! Kids of all ages will read the Magic Tree House series and report back to do experiments, activities, and crafts that bring the books to life.
On October 2, we'll discuss "Pirates Past Noon" and dive into the history of sunken ships with Florida Public Archaeology. Learn about underwater archaeology by investigating one of Florida's shipwreck sites! This presentation will discuss how underwater sites form and the excavation processes needed to do archaeology on them. Kids get to try their hands at underwater archaeology by excavating the Maple Leaf, a Civil War era shipwreck.
All activities are meant to enhance the reading of the Magic Tree House books while also teaching different concepts and skills. Those who choose not to read the books are still invited to partake in the activities.
