The South Fork Natural History Museum is offering a new bilingual afterschool environment science enrichment program.
The program, open to students in third through fifth grades, is free, thanks to the support of an anonymous donor.
Classes meet at the museum in Bridgehampton on Tuesdays or Thursdays from 4 to 5:30 PM. A bilingual teacher will guide children through interactive activities in the classroom and outdoors.
The program will offer roleplaying to see how animals survive in the wild, games to show how animals and plants interact with each other, and presentations with live animals to observe how they adapt to living in other habitats. The classes will be coordinated with elementary school science content, helping children develop a deeper understanding of science ideas they will need for middle and high school science subjects.
The first session began on Tuesday with a Thursday class offered on January 17. A second session will begin on March 12. To register, call 631-537-9735 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
