GLORIA'S ACTIVITIES (Age 5)
Animals were everywhere Gloria looked at the Smithsonian. At the Natural History Museum, animals are “real but not alive,” so she could often see them up close. The Hall of Mammals had animal footprints to walk in, a hoof to touch, and habitats to explore. When she saw the fossils in the dinosaur hall, Gloria wanted pictures of them. The postcard she bought would help her remember the many different kinds of dinosaurs in the museum.
The place Gloria found the most pictures of animals was the Postal Museum. She saw an exhibit about duck stamps that showed how they saved real ducks’ habitats. And she drew a design for her own postage stamp (including butterflies!) right there inside the building.
