Sound the drum roll….. Stop #21. The last “official” stop on the 2012 Kids’ ArtPrize Tour! Here are picks from Ah-Nab-Owen Park and you are back where you started (Stop #1).  Thanks again to our friends at grkids.com for the work done on creating the Tour and we hope you’ve enjoyed it as much as we did!

Some overall questions for this stop:

  • How are the exhibits at this stop alike?
  • How are the exhibits at this stop different?
  • How is this stop alike or different from the stops we’ve already visited?

Flight 

  • How many birds do you see?
  • What is your favorite kind of bird?
  • What other birds have we seen on the tour?
  • Do you know how birds fly?
  • If you could be a bird, what kind would you be and why?
  • Does this remind you of any stories you know?

My Polyethylene Terephthalate Garden 

  • Those big words mean plastic often used for food and liquid containers, which is what this garden is made of.
  • [polly-eth-el-een]
  • [tair-eff-thul-ate]
  • What colors do you see?
  • How many flowers are in the garden?

  • What other pieces have we seen that were made with recycled materials? With plastic?
  • What other kinds of gardens are there (other than flower gardens)?
  • Does this remind you of any stories you know?

Ta-Da

Follow-up activities could include looking up information on birds or flowers; researching flight; creating sculptures out of plastic bottles; writing a story about where those birds could be flying; describing one of these pieces to someone who wasn’t there with you.
