Book and a Bite - Tuesdays 11:30 to 1:00 at Sacajawea

Christa Rowland of United Way of Treasure Valley reads to our kids and their friends. 
We loved seeing our families at Book and a Bite this Tuesday.  We read stories and learned about water and about electricity.  Kids made water wheels and generally had a good time playing the little swamp with running water in front of the school (Thanks Idaho Public Television and Boise City Dept of Parks and Rec). 

Idaho Power had a table full of activities (below) to explore the world of electricity.  Thanks!

Even though the Sacajawea Library will have it's last day tomorrow, Book and a Bite will continue every Tuesday until the last session on August 7th.  Each week another STEM theme.
Every Tuesday from 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM on the front lawn of Sacajawea Elementary.  Can't wait to see what the next theme is!

Did It Sink or Float?

This Tuesday’s theme for Sacajawea’s "A Book and a Bite" was sink and float.  Families and kids of all ages enjoyed various activities.  First, they listened to books about boats and water.  Then, they got to pick a free book to take home and read.  Next, they predicted what things would float and then built boats and rafts. They tested and modified them to get their creations to float.  Finally, they got to eat a nice lunch.  Each week, some items are raffled off to the people who attend. It was a fun afternoon for all.  There are three more "A Book and Bite" days with activities. They are:
July 24th – Water Power
July 31st – States of Matter
August 7th Libraries Rock
We hope to see you there from 11:30am-1:00pm. 
¿Se hincó o flotó?
El tema de este martes para "A Book and a Bite" de Sacajawea fue hundirse y flotar. Las familias y los niños de todas las edades disfrutaron de varias actividades. Primero, escucharon libros sobre barcos y agua. Luego, tenían que elegir un libro gratis para llevar a casa y leer. Luego, predijeron qué cosas flotaban y luego construyeron botes. Los probaron y modificaron para hacer flotar sus creaciones. Finalmente, pudieron comer un buen almuerzo. Cada semana, algunos artículos se rifan a las personas que asisten. Fue una tarde divertida para todos. Hay tres días más de "A Book and Bite" con actividades. Ellos son:
24 dejulio - Fuente de Agua
31de julio - Estados de la materia
7de agosto - Bibliotecas Rock
Esperamos contar con tu presencia de 11:30 am-1:00pm.
