Would you like to meet a dragon? In this class you will meet MANY different dragons as we explore the mythologies, legends and folktales of different cultures, traveling the world in search of this large, serpent-like creature known by some as beneficent, and others as pure evil. Use different materials to create a dragon, and then become an author and craft a tale about your amazing creature. Maybe your dragon will have four legs, a scaly body, and wings like the Chaldean dragon, Tiamat, or perhaps it will look similar to the ancient Egyptian god Apepi, or have multiple heads like the ancient Greek Hydra. Will your dragon be good or evil? We’ll find out in Dragon Encounters.
About Your Extraordinary Saturday (YES)
For 1st – 4th Grade Students
A New Adventure Every Weekend
MITY's program for elementary students enables inquisitive, high achieving 1st - 4th grade students to continue learning outside of the traditional classroom. Courses are intentionally designed to inspire inquiry, activate imaginations, and engage eager learners in hands on discovery that is not possible within a regular classroom setting. While students are in class, parents are invited to listen to professional speakers on topics related to raising bright children, socialize with other parents, or visit a local coffee shop.
