Arithmetickles is an interactive math game show in which numbers jump off the page and onto the stage. The program uses humor, interactive skits, and 100% audience participation to make everyday math come to live. The show involves students in the learning process and provides grade appropriate, funny examples of how to use textbook math in everyday situations. By using elements of highly creative children’s theatre and encouraging students to succeed on stage in front of their peers, Arithmetickles also helps increase overall confidence and self-esteem while it demonstrates how cool math can be.

Dancin’ with the Honey Bees
Tuesday, May 7, 2013 | 10:00 am and 12:30 pm
$8 per person
Clifford Wright-Sunflower is a master beekeeper and environmentalist. Aided by an eager volunteer from the audience dressed in beekeeping equipment, Clifford demonstrates the precision of a beekeeper working a beehive. He transforms the entire audience into a working hive. With bodies busily buzzing around, children learn firsthand about the delicate and complex balance of the bee colony. After the honey bee dance, children are divided into smaller groups to visit an observation hive of bees, to make a beeswax candle, and most important, to share bee fears, experiences, and questions. Program presented by Clifford Wright-Sunflower.
