New Program, "Life in a Tipi," at ND Heritage Center & State Museum
BISMARCK - Toddlers and preschoolers are invited to participate in "Life in a Tipi" on Feb. 1 at 10:30 a.m. at the North Dakota Heritage Center & State Museum. Participants will learn how to set up a tipi and how people lived in them, such as the American Indians of the Great Plains. All children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
This program is part of “Little Kids, Big World,” a free interactive learning series sponsored by the State Historical Society of North Dakota. These fun 30-minute programs introduce children to North Dakota’s fascinating history—from dinosaurs through today’s ongoing story. Additional upcoming programs include “Little Archaeologists” on Feb. 8, “Fantastic Fossils” on Feb. 15, “Homesteader House” on Feb. 22, “Fur Trade Fun” on Feb. 29, “Little Paleontologist” on March 7, “Sacred Bison” on March 14, and “Working Wind” on March 21.
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.
