Early Childhood Teacher/Provider Workshop: "Get it to Balance"
What can you get to balance? Explore balance, movement, and design by constructing sculptures in the style of Alexander Calder's mobiles. We will compare and contrast symmetry and asymmetry in design and weight, and explore cause and effect by trying to balance weights and physically work out visual choices. Students will also demonstrate an emerging knowledge of measurement (ELG 11.3) and sort, classify, and group materials by one or more characteristics (ELG 12.1).
$20 per person. Pre-registration by 1/18 requested. Please call or visit the Explora website for additional details and to register.
