Our popular Mouse City program gives kids a chance to explore real-life urban planning issues by constructing model cities out of craft materials. The latest installment, Mouse City Valley, is a partnership with Evergreen Brick Works (EBW) that will address the biggest civic challenge of them all: the environment.
The project will run on four consecutive Sundays from April 8-29 (inclusive), followed by a public exhibition of the diorama at EBW on May 5, 6 and 12. FREE With RSVP. SOLD OUT. But there are spaces on the Waiting List. Click here to sign-up.
Students aged 8−12 can engage in an exploration of this historical site involving mapping exercises and indigenous story circles, culminating in the creation of a model valley with buildings for storybook mice. They can also “conduct tours” of Mouse City Valley for visitors to EBW when the diorama is exhibited in the Children’s Garden.
The project consists of four interlinked sessions; April 8, April 15, April 22 and April 29. Each unit takes place at EBW from 10:30am-1:30pm. Students are encouraged to take part in the complete series (all four units). But they can attend individual units.
Space is limited. Register early for the sessions you want to attend.
