Fun educational workshop for childcare centres (CPEs)
« Pas à pas »
Description of activity
This workshop allows each child to learn at their own pace while becoming familiar with a number of animal species: the grey squirrel, raccoon, mallard duck, weasel and teal.
Outline of activity
The children will be asked to follow the tracks of a native Quebec animal and get to know it better. At the end of the trail, they’ll discover one of the mounted animals from our collection, which will be described in simple terms by the puppet Bestiole (“Critter”). Each child will also make an impression of their own handprint to take home.
- Develop listening skills (the puppet Bestiole will tell a story about each animal)
- Follow instructions
- Move around the space
- Develop fine motor control through crafting
- Learn how to act and be comfortable in a group setting
