Join the Billings Bookworms! From July 12 through August 16, kids ages 6-8 are invited to Billings Farm & Museum each week to read about and explore a farm-themed topic. This is not just a book club! There are activities and crafts each week and Bookworms get to experience all the site has to offer.
Billings Bookworms Week 4: The Curious Garden
10-10:30 Book reading and exploration. This week will begin with a story called The Curious Garden by Peter Brown. The Bookworms will listen and pick a passage that they find interesting and write or draw about it. Then, they will have the chance to share what they’ve written or drawn with the group.
10:30-10:45 Snack time. Snack will be provided by Billings Farm & Museum. During snack, we’ll read a chapter from Good Dog: Herd You Loud and Clear by Cam Higgins and Ariel Landy, which is about a young herding dog working to bring in the sheep. Each week we will continue reading from this chapter book until it is finished on the last day of the club.
10:45-11:30 Activity time. Today Bookworms will spend time in the gardens, where they will plant a seed to take home and pick bugs and herbs to feed our chickens!
