SMART Gals, Lost in Lexicon: An Adventure in Words and Numbers
April 18, 2012
In this Lexicon Villages event, children and parents work together through a series of interactive stations representing math and language concepts from this award-winning book that combines learning and adventure. Feed synonyms to a thesaurus, create sentences out of flower petals, discover pi, measure the museum in paces, make up your own words using Greek and Latin roots, try your hand at puzzling Tangrams, do a maze in a mirror, and more! Meet the book's author and get a sneak peak of the second book in the series, The Ice Castle, coming to stores August 2012, and leave with an autographed copy of Lost in Lexicon and a packet of even more activities to try at home. The SMART (Science-Math-Art) Gals Series is sponsored by The Ramsey McCluskey Family Foundation. Instructor: Penny Noyce Ages: 8 to 12 Fee: $10 for members; $12 for non-members Pre-registration required by April 16; please register and pay online at http://tinyurl.com/LexiconVillages-April2012.
