Totally Tweens: Iowa Explorers

April 22 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Mondays April 2024 –4:00pm to 5:00pm

Storytime Room

Iowa has 99 counties, and they all have a story to tell. Did you know that Mahaska County is home to a rare cemetery just for mules (a cross between a donkey and a horse)? Did you know that Washington County is home to the oldest continually-operating movie theater in the entire world?

Join us for a whirlwind tour through the state using FIND Iowa, a new immersive learning platform developed by Iowa PBS. We’ll meet for 6 weeks and learn something fascinating about a handful of counties each week, till we’ve worked our way across the state!

Each week, we’ll first watch a very short, entertaining video about each county, filmed onsite, that tells us about a specific historical, cultural, or scientific contribution to Iowa. A meteorite that plummeted to earth? A town submerged under a lake? A world-famous wrestler? Learn all about it! Then, we’ll reflect on the content with a brief brainstorming prompt. Finally, get hands-on with a fun craft project or experiment related to something we’ve learned.

爱荷华州有 99 个县,每个县都有自己特别的故事。你知道吗? 马哈斯卡县有一座罕见的骡子墓地(驴和马的杂交种)?华盛顿县是世界上最古老的运营至今的电影院所在地?
本活动中我们将跟随爱荷华州 PBS 开发的全新沉浸式学习平台“探寻爱荷华”一起进行旋风之旅。活动为期6 周,每周一下午,我们将来到图书馆逐个了解每个县的趣味知识,直到我们覆盖整个爱荷华州!

If you need disability-related accommodations in order to participate in this event, please contact the Library.

This event is open to the public.
