Back by popular demand! ! Join Bedtime Math’s Crazy 8s, a totally new kind of math club where you’ll build stuff, toss beach balls, make amazing mazes and more! You’ll have a blast with mischief-making activities like Beach Ball Party, Funny Money and Glow-in-the-Dark City. All the activities are new, so you are welcome to join again if you’ve done season one!
Best for children in grades Kindergarten through Second, or ages 5 – 7. Older children are welcome with their younger siblings.
The club will meet on Wednesdays @ 4:30-5:15 pm, from November 2 through December 28 (except November 23, when the library is closed to observe Thanksgiving).
Weekly Session Descriptions:
Glow-in-the-Dark City: Take geometry to the next level! Learn to recognize some important 3-D shapes, then build a giant skyscraper of glowsticks and styrofoam balls. Flick off the lights to see your creations!
Crazy 8s Race: Play a brand new board game: roll dice to travel around a figure 8, and bring on your teammates when numbers match up. See who makes it to 8 x 8 first!
Funny Money: We’ll bet money you’ll love this one! Have fun comparing coins, buying prizes with them, and finally winning them in an extreme version of Rock, Paper, Scissors!
Beach Ball Party: This is a party you won’t want to miss! You’ll use our star-studded beach ball to play volleyball, then go gaga chucking the ball against targets to score points.
Funky Fractals: Get funky with patterns and mazes! Create crazy patterns with wax sticks, and connect them to make a giant version. Then design your own waxy maze to stump your friends.
Walk on the Wild Side: How do ladybugs, crabs and lizards run so fast with all those extra legs? They use math! We’ll run, walk and gallop like animals to learn some fancy footwork.
Super-Cube Shuffle: Math and art collide when you use specially colored cubes to create cool designs. After a round of design copy mania, you’ll be a super-cube pro!
Epic Air Traffic Control: Build your own airport, complete with finger-light airplanes and glowstick runways. Use your math skills to land all the planes without crashing!
