Constructing great beasts at Wilmington Public Library


Pieces of colored construction paper, markers, glue sticks and scissors were provided Wednesday afternoon to participants in the Wilmington Public Library’s Discovery Club who were asked to make an elephant figure that could stand up on a table. Hint: Folding pieces into something like an accordion is helpful for the trunk and body. The K through grade 5 club focuses on age-appropriate activities relating to STEAM — Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math. From left are Alora Stuckert, 9, Marilyn Hatfield, 11, a parent Jessica Mothersole, and Mykah Mothersole, 7.
