Pioneer Games Kick Off February Programs at North Dakota Heritage Center & State Museum
BISMARCK - Toddlers and preschoolers are invited to "Let's Play Pioneer Games" at 10:30 a.m., Feb. 6, at the North Dakota Heritage Center & State Museum. The program will teach toddlers classic games from North Dakota's pioneer days. All children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
The program is part of “Little Kids, Big World,” a free interactive learning series sponsored by the State Historical Society of North Dakota. These fun, hands-on 30-minute programs introduce children to North Dakota’s fascinating history—from dinosaurs through today’s ongoing story.
Additional upcoming programs in the series include “I Spy in Double Ditch” on Feb. 13, where participants will investigate the Double Ditch cyclorama and get hands-on time with objects depicted in the mural; “Collection Crazy!” on Feb. 20, where the participants will sift, sort, and separate objects as we think about how the State Museum staff creates a collection; and "Dinosaur Discovery" on Feb. 27, as we ask the questions: "What did dinosaurs feel like?" and "Did they sound like they do in the movies?" Participants will learn the answers to these questions and more.
The programs are led by Stephanie Schick, a gallery guide at the ND Heritage Center & State Museum. She is a graduate of Northern Arizona University who previously worked as an educator at the National Mississippi River Museum & Aquarium in Dubuque, Iowa. Schick, who has a passion for history, science, and education, loves to travel and has taught in schools in Kenya and Egypt.
Participants are asked to meet at the east entrance information desk at the ND Heritage Center & State Museum. For more information, contact Erik Holland, 701.328.2792. For more programs sponsored by the State Historical Society of North Dakota, go to statemuseum.nd.gov/events.
