New! Health and Nutrition- EatPlayGrow
EatPlayGrow™ is a new early childhood health curriculum developed by the Children’s Museum of Manhattan (CMOM), and is the first to be approved by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and Center for Disease Control (CDC). This curriculum combines common core standards, the latest science and research from the NIH, and CMOM’s holistic arts and literacy-based pedagogy. In partnership with CMOM, the Mid-Hudson Children’s Museum created two field trip programs for children ages 3-7.
Hands on activities get children thinking, creating and sculpting the perfect meal. With a focus on the importance of vegetables, fruits, health beverages, and proper portion sizes, this lively program introduces children to nutrition basics. (Pre-K, K-2)
Children are introduced to the workings of their bodies, what gives them energy, and the importance of exercise and sleep. Activities utilize art, storytelling, music and movement.
New! Early Skills
MHCM is proud to offer two new field trips to advance school readiness skills. Each offers age-appropriate content knowledge and a multi-dimensional approach to encourage early literacy and language skills, gross and fine motor skills, and social/emotional skills.
Shapes and Sounds
This interactive presentation encourages pre-reading skills using movement, sound and letter shapes. Children will discover “clues” which make up 3 to 4 letter words. This theatrical program introduces the process of putting letters and sounds together to form words in a “can-do”, fun environment! (Pre-K, K-1)
Five, Five, Come Alive!
Using our very own sensory “tool kit”, children will learn about some of the fascinating animals and plant life living in our back yard. This is a hands-on interactive program that reinforces School Readiness and also works well for mixed age groups. (Pre-K, K-2)
