Vacation Program

  • Monday: Rescue. Save the Elephants
  • Monday, April 13, 2009
  • 9:00 am – 3:00 pm
  • Designed for ages 6 to 8

Construct an elegant elephant with synthetic ivory tusks…recycled from piano keys produced in Essex after the end of Connecticut's ivory trade. Your elephant will serve as a treasure box (or a bank). We'll make a contribution to Save the Elephants for each student. Look at migrations of the elephants on Google Earth.
