The Kids Library Club is designed to foster social connection for kids through fun learning activities. Using virtual video chat, kids are introduced to new concepts and ideas in fun and engaging ways. Topics range from a variety of educational disciplines such as science and technology, arts, social studies and more.
This week we will be exploring the Geography & History subject of the Ontario school curriculum by virtually travelling around the world using Google Street View. We will be visiting locations that may otherwise never be seen without flying - from the Roman Colosseum to the Syndey Opera House, to the Eiffel Tower in France and many more.
This program is geared towards children aged 8-12.
The program will be conducted over the Zoom video platform. For saftey and attendance purposes, please register for the programing using your childs first name. For instructions on how to use Zoom, please watch this video. Library staff will email the Zoom link to all participants an hour before the program begins. You do not have to have a Zoom account to attend this program. However, if you do not have the software you will be prompted to download it when you click on the link provided. There is no charge for the download but it does take a few minutes to complete so please allow time before the start of the program to do so.
During the program please make sure there is an adult nearby to supervise your child and to ensure the best possible use of internet resources, provide technical assistance and to maintain behaviour.
