Hancock County families found the real treasure by shaking off the winter doldrums Feb. 26 at Children’s Museum Night, sponsored by Dani’s Dreams Outdoor Education Center at Zion Lutheran School’s gymnasium. The evening included free, educational and entertaining activities designed for families to learn and interact together when the Children Museum’s, National Geographic’s “Treasures of the Earth” came to New Palestine. Zion’s PTL provided concessions for sale.
Children and their families:
• Examined and identified authentic tools in an archeologist’s pack;
• Assembled a take-home science experiment to observe and learn about what happens to metal objects in saltwater environments;
• Wrote their names in hieroglyphs in a pharaoh’s cartouche, and
• Created their own “Terra Cotta Warriors” in Emperor Qin’s tomb
This entertaining and educational science program kicked off the year’s activities at Hancock County’s only outdoor education center.
