Description

"

Playing house is an important activity for young children. By playing with the tasks and patterns of everyday life they absorb information about their culture. Reenacting the daily life and playing house with household goods of other culture children learn about other ways of life. Children are told a story about a brother and sister whose family is part of a nomadic clan who are moving their herds south for the winter. Using the same tents, large pots, storage bags, and tools that were pictured in the story children then recreate and reinterpret life in a nomadic household. The children are encouraged to bring the story to life and to dramatize it in their own way and in the process experience a life that is very different from their own.

This event is free and open to the public. Contact Andrea Mandel at the Marple Public Library for more information.

The Outreach lecture Program is funded by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and sponsored by the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology. Please visit our Commonwealth Lecture Program page for more information.
