A free program, "I Spy in Double Ditch," will introduce toddlers and preschoolers to history from 10:30 to 11 a.m. Monday at the North Dakota Heritage Center & State Museum.
Participants will investigate the Double Ditch Indian Village handpainted mural in the museum and have hands-on time with objects depicted in the mural. During “Homes on the Range” on Feb. 12, participants will interact with the exhibit “House & Home” as they learn about homes in North Dakota throughout history. On Feb. 26, participants will be using their imagination in “Eyes on History.” Fun or unusual images from North Dakota’s history will inspire imagination as the staff incorporates calm time studying each image and excited time dancing to music.
Programs are led by Stephanie Schick, a gallery guide at the North Dakota Heritage Center & State Museum. Schick is a graduate of Northern Arizona University who worked as an educator at the National Mississippi River Museum & Aquarium in Dubuque, Iowa. Schick has also taught in schools in Kenya and Egypt.
