Digestion Program

Bailey Carpenter presented a program on on foods and digestion to 14 children today at the library. They talked about food groups and  played fruit basket upset. Next they put a piece of cracker on their tongue, noticed how the taste changed, and it began to dissolve. They put bread in a baggy and squeezed it to illustrate how food is digested in our body. Last they did a guessing activity identifying the ingredients in pizza and where they come from. Bailey read a book called I Will Never, Ever Eat a Tomato.6-30 6-30=2 6-30-3

Hermit Crabs

Jeslynn and Taylor Beckman read imageimageFinding Dory: Explore the Big Blue Ocean today to 15 children.  During the story the children put together some puzzles. Then they got to look at and hold two pet hermit crabs, Shelly and Bob, that belong to the Beckman kids!

Root vegetables

imageToday at activity time, 19 kids tasted a radish, carrot, and yam. They rated each on crispness, dryness, and taste. The radish was liked the least. The Yam tasted similar to the carrot. Bailey also baked chocolate chips cookies, some plain, some made with applesauce, and some with plain yogurt. The kids tried to identify which was which but couldn’t. They agreed all were good! Thanks Bailey Carpenter!!

Story time

Blake and Chloe Henn read the book The Pout-Pout Fish Goes to School.  The children did a fish maze, dot to dot shapes, and then colored a fish while eating Goldfish.  They went outside and played “Sharks and Minnows”. About 20 children were at the library.  Blake and Chloe are members of the Way out West 4-H club.fish story

Activity time

Twenty children came to the library today for activity time.  Bailey Carpenter, from the Antelope County Extension Office, gave a program on Senses. The kids made nature bracelets from items found outside the library.  They were very colorful! Next, they matched various foods to the animals that would eat them. Bailey read a book called What Is That Awful Smell  and the children had to guess 11 different items by the smell on a cotton ball in a jar. It was a great lesson!Nature
