April Vacation Week!

There may not be any school, but there is a lot to learn here at CDM!

Monday: 11am – 12pm, Chewonki will present “Animal Adaptations, Survival in the Wild”. “Webbed feet, camouflaged fur, or spines on your back are all amazing ways that animals adapt to survive in the wild. In this fun-filled hour, students will learn about adaptations, try on fun costumes, and see firsthand how three of our live non-releasable animals have adaptations that help them thrive in their specific habitats. After the presentation, students will be encouraged to create their own animal with adaptations from their imagination!”

Tuesday: 10:30 am, Maine children’s book author Lynn Plourde will be reading her books “Dino Pets Go to School” and “Only Cows Allowed”.

Plourde has had twenty-seven children’s books published, including her newest “Only Cows Allowed,” “Dino Pets Go to School,” and “Lost Trail,” a graphic novel co-authored with Donn Fendler. Her other books include “Pigs in the Mud in the Middle of the Rud,” “The Dump Man’s Treasures,” a Smithsonian Notable Book for Children, and “Margaret Chase Smith: A Woman for President,” a 2008 National Council for Social Studies Notable Book. Video read-alouds and learning activities are available on her www.lynnplourde.com website.

Plourde is a Skowhegan native who currently lives in Winthrop with her husband.

Wednesday: 11am, Maine Bicycle Coalition will be talking about bicycle and pedestrian safety, just in time for summer! Also, Brandi Nelson from Golden Touch Massage in Manchester will have her chair massage here, so come with another adult friend and take turns playing with the kiddos. There is an additional cost for the chair massage, but well worth it!

Thursday: Our Earth Day Celebration! We will be talking about recycling and composting, planting seeds and so much more!!

Friday: 11am Archie and Friends will be singing with us!

So plan your week out and be sure to include a trip in to see us!
