Play a Jeopardy game to learn everything there is to know about these fascinating creatures.  Find out what kinds we have, what their unique adaptations are, and many more fun facts!

March 16 – Food to Faces

Students will learn the basic skills of collage in creating a human form.  They will then learn about Italian artist Giuseppe Arcimboldo, who is famous for creating portraits out of food items.  After a discussion of nutrition, the participants will then create their own “portrait a la Giuseppe Arcimboldo,” creating their body out of their favorite foods. 

March 23 – The Power of the Flower

Flower blossoms have only one job, no matter how pretty or drab they are.  Dissect a flower and learn its parts, how it does what it does, and start some flower seeds or early spring plantings. Please pick up supplies at the Frelinghuysen Arboretum.
