Last month the pre-k class enjoyed a special visit from COOL CRITTERS.  From their website: Cool Critters Outreach, LLC (CCO) is a fun, interactive, and educational way of looking at reptiles, amphibians & invertebrates. It is an opportunity to get an up-close, personal look at the fascinating world of snakes, lizards, dragons, alligators, spiders, and more.   

The kids were very curious and very brave!  

Western Hognose Snake

The Bearded Dragon, "Sergeant Stubbs"
(he lost most of his tail in a fight with another dragon)

"Peepers," the African Tortoise

American Alligator. He isn't so scary with his mouth taped shut!

"Venus" the boa constrictor!

Venus is demonstrating how she can wrap around trees (and other things).

Merlin the Magician

 Merlin the Magician stopped by to entertain us with some magical storytelling!  

The kids listened to Merlin tell exciting stories
about pirates, caterpillars, and space. 
He was very silly! The kids loved volunteering
to go up on stage and help out with the tricks. 

"Reynaldo the flea" is holding up one side of the rope. How does he do that?!

Will the right pirate flag come out of the bag?

The pre-k class, listening to Merlin the Magician telling a wild tale!

A volunteer from the pre-k class helps Merlin with a trick during his story about a trip to space.

Heritage Village School Program

The students at Endeavor really enjoyed a visit from Heritage Village! They were able to experience what a day was like in the life of their 19th century counterparts. A time when children really had to work. 

Everyone also got a chance to practice sewing with a large plastic needle and comb out sheep's wool.  But we got to play with some of the toys and games from the 19th century and that was pretty fun!

It was also fun dressing up in some of the kinds of clothes that they used to wear back then.  

It was very hard to carry the water buckets.

The buckets were heavy and they didn't even have any water in them!

Playing the harp!

Harpist, Sabra, with her harp. It is about 6 feet tall!

Listening to harpist, Sabra Thomas, talk about how the harp makes sound. She played several songs for the children, including "Clair de Lune," a piece about a swam, and a storytelling piece about fairies!

Everyone who wanted a turn got a chance to strum the harp. Sabra shows them how to use their first finger and point it down while moving it across the strings.
