The next MM Kids class will be Tuesday, December 14, at 4:00 pm at TCAT. Suggested age range is 8 yrs and up.
This hour-long class focuses on weather folklore. We’ll discuss what works and what doesn’t and why. We’ll also discuss just how complex our planet’s atmosphere is and what that means for folklore. A hands-on activity will make the lesson come to life! Sign up at https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeJd9uESXEQKxIxF07Hk0BxcDaCsCpxWHVceM-YqtZzww7y7Q/viewform
