CASTINE BOOKWORMS PODCAST DEBUTS!
New!!! Not sure what to read next, tune in every two weeks to hear a podcast written and recorded by the Adams School Grade 6 students. The podcast will be archived on the Witherle Memorial YouTube Channel on its own playlist. Each podcast will focus on a book or series of children’s books. Enjoy, and let us know if you have comments, questions or suggestions for the podcast crew. Go to Podcast/Video. Debra Orado
For eight Fridays, from February 11 through April 1, the library will feature a paper engineering project for you to experiment with. We hope you share your results with others by using our padlet wall that is linked to each project’s page. The projects range in level of difficulty. Don’t be afraid to ask for help with any of the activities. The fun is in experimenting and working together with another person!
How It Works
You click on the link below, it will take you to a Google Drive that shows a table of all eight projects. Each is listed by date and will be live on that date. IMPORTANT: you must select “slideshow” from right navigation bar to view the instruction movie located in the center box of the Paper Engineering Board. You will hear the Children’s Librarian explain some of the tasks and talk a little about paper engineering. You can work at home or join us in the children’s room where all the supplies will be provided. Previous weeks projects will still be available. Happy Engineering! Click to Get Started
