Program Room

Read-aloud storytime + STEAM activity for ages 6 to 9

We’ll begin by sharing a great story together, and then bring the book to life through a hands-on STEAM activity inspired by the story.

Here’s what we’ll be reading: "A Bean, A Stalk, and a Boy Named Jack" by William Joyce.

Activity: We'll attempt to build Jack a parachute and a zipline to help him escape the giant.

Let’s test out your skills as a Story Scientist!
