NASA: Bear Hugs & Cosmic Dances

April 5 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am CDT

What: Bear Hugs and Cosmic Dances
When: 04/05/2024 | 10:30 AM
Where: Garland County Library
Who: 3-8

Bring your pre-school children to immerse themselves in the story of Moonbear’s Shadow by Frank Asch. Using a Bear figure and a flashlight, we will recreate shadow scenes from the picture book and discover the three ingredients to a good shadow. Children will explore how the position of light affects the size, shape, and position of the shadow. We will then demonstrate how a total solar eclipse casts a shadow across the Earth and how those three ingredients are present on a cosmic scale when we experience an eclipse.

*Group visits by appointment only.
