Preschool Story Time: Animal Tracks
Footprints in the mud or snow can often be a clue to who was there before us and where they were heading. On Wednesday, February 4 at 10:00 am children age 3 and 4 with an adult will investigate the different shapes and sizes of footprints that animals leave behind and what they can tell us about how they move. We will read books in the mansion about animal tracking and will even make human tracks. Afterwards, we will head outside to look for signs of animals who have recently visited Gore Place! $10 per child. Free for members at Family Level and above. Reservations are required by February 3. Maximum 10 children. For information, email email@example.com or call (781) 894-2798.
