MAPPING MY WORLD: February school vacation week program
Presented by The Mary Baker Eddy Library
February 21 - February 24, 2012
Every February, during Boston’s school vacation week, The Mary Baker Eddy Library hosts free entertaining and educational programs for youth ages 17 and under from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Library programs are designed to provide families with fun experiences, new insights about Mary Baker Eddy and the Library’s collections, and to maximize the value of museum-based learning.
Visit The Mary Baker Eddy Library for "Mapping My Wold", an interactive program that teaches children to look at maps in a new way, including the world-famous Mapparium®. Various activities will touch upon key skills of making and reading maps, highlight the history of mapmaking, and share about Mary Baker Eddy’s life, time period, and personal travels.
Families are also invited to tour the Library’s five main exhibit galleries where they can experience how the power of ideas has inspired individuals and changed the world.
During all school vacation week programs, showings of "Big Blue Earth" are featured in the Mapparium. And don’t forget to check out the Library’s annual special exhibit "Finding Peace" before it closes on March 18!
