I had so much fun visiting the Calvert Marine Museum last week for their Little Minnows program! After listening to a reading of Olly the Oyster Cleans the Bay, students made stick puppets of the characters from the book and participated in a puppet show. Everyone had a part! Special thanks to Maureen Baughman, Kate Dumhart and Laura Cole for organizing this wonderful event.
The Little Minnows program at the Calvert Marine Museum is a morning program for pre-schoolers ages 3 – 5. This was a special session in which older siblings were invited to participate. Sessions meet in the Harms Gallery and focus on one of the museum’s three themes. The program usually includes a story and craft activity and is scheduled the fourth Thursday morning of each month.

The Calvert Marine Museum, located in Solomons, Maryland is a true Maryland treasure with aquarium exhibits, touch-tanks, a fossil exhibit, sea otter display, its own lighthouse, family programs and more!
