Join us for the Halloween edition of Storytime Science—a storybook read-aloud followed by a simple related activity geared toward very young children. Exploratorium's Vivian Altmann will read aloud Skulls! by Blair Thornburgh and illustrated by Scott Campbell, and guide you through three slightly spooky activities you can do with simple household items. For Head Harp, you'll need some thick string or twine, your head, and an assistant (a grown-up will do). For The Creaking Door, you'll need a thin plastic or paper cup, some string, a paper clip, a ball-point pen, and a small cup of water. For The Haunted Rice, you'll need some raw rice, water, a wine glass with a stem, and a grown-up assistant. Free online event. Recommended for ages 3+.
