Amazing Animals

Whether they can regrow a tail or lift 1,000 times their weight, our animal friends at Brooklyn Children’s Museum have super powers! All animals, including humans, have unique gifts that help us to survive, grow, solve problems, and live our daily lives. Students explore the science of adaptation and expert survival skills with reptiles and insects and other BCM animal friends. Inspired by what we observe of our animal friends, students move their bodies and reflect on their own superpowers.

Beautiful Us

People around the world use different materials to adorn our bodies and to tell stories about who we are. Beautiful Us is a cultural collections investigation and art-making workshop in which students explore the unique and universal reasons we adorn ourselves. Students investigate cultural adornments from our collection and then make their very own body adornment that expresses themselves.

Me and My Super Sense Self

Activate your senses through looking, listening, and hands-on exploration of highlights from the Museum’s collection. Students will interact with a live animal, investigate a cultural object, and design a kaleidoscope that changes their perspective.

Our Littlest Neighbors

Whether it’s a nest, a shell, a hive, or a burrow, all animals create unique homes. Through exploration of objects from BCM’s natural science collection, students investigate the ways that animals create shelters and how these homes offer protection and enable them to grow and thrive. Students consider the everyday needs of an animal of their choosing, and will then use natural materials to create a mini habitat and describe the animal who could make a home there.
