#2: Field Tripping - In our Community

We have partnered with Heritage Park to bring you this week's Family program! It will be presented in person at the Heritage Park Museum! Our program activity will be held outdoors, with a maximum of 10 participants, (including grown-ups), for 30 minutes. We have 3 sign-up sessions available, for a total of 30 participants. Should the weather be poor - our activity will be held in the Dance Hall building. Please note children must be accompanied by an adult for this program.

Summer Selections books will be collected at Heritage Park Museum at the end of your session.

Be on time! Due to the time restricted limits of our sessions, please be punctual.

Field Tripping
Think It! Plan It! Build It!

Summer is a great time to explore outdoors as a family. As you walk in nature pay attention to the plants and animals around you. Listen for animal sounds and look at different plant types.

Get the iNaturalist app! Their mobile app will help you identify plants. Watch this video to learn how it works!

Check out the Library’s Green Thumb lesson to learn about how plants adapt to their environment. Look for the “Survival- Plant Style” link.

Find these 15 places: Between Christie Park and Lanfear Drive. (Click the picture on the right to enlarge!)

Send a picture with your team beside one of the spots in the challenge to library@terracelibrary.ca. Put "Field Tripping" in the subject line and include your name for a chance to win a prize!

Rube Goldberg brought both his humour and his training as an engineer into making his famous cartoons. Click here to see some of his iconic comic strips.

A Rube Goldberg Machine is a series of chain reactions that make a simple task complicated (and humorous). Tinker Lab is a great site to start to learning about Rube Goldberg Machines. It lays out clear instructions with some inspirational kid-designed machines.

Check out Joseph’s Machines for some very complex and amusing inventions!

Get inspired by checking out the Terrace Public Library's Marble Run lesson.

Happy inventing!

The library's Leopard Gecko, K'oom, went for a walk down-town and thought it would be fun to take some pictures. Unfortunately, she has a terrible memory. K'oom can't remember where the pictures were taken!
