“Bull Boat Up Close” will offer toddlers and preschoolers the opportunity to explore a bull boat through sight and touch, and even climb inside one, on Monday.
As part of the “Little Kids, Big World,” the program will be offered at 10:30 a.m. at the North Dakota Heritage Center & State Museum. The hands-on 30-minute program will introduce children to North Dakota’s history. All children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
On Oct. 29, children can get an idea what life may have been like at work and at play for a homesteading family and imagine their family living in a1915 homesteader cabin in “Life on the Homestead.”
The programs will be led by Stephanie Schick, a gallery guide at the North Dakota Heritage Center & State Museum. Schick is a graduate of Northern Arizona University, who previously worked as an educator at the National Mississippi River Museum & Aquarium in Dubuque, Iowa. Schick, who has a passion for history, science and education, loves to travel and has taught in schools in Kenya and Egypt.
