Grands Are Grand is a monthly informal science program for children ages 3-5 and their grandparents offered by the North Museum of Natural History & Science in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. The lessons include a wide variety of touchable, visual, and audible materials that present opportunities for active exploration and learning. Children are able to touch live animals, feel their skins and skeletons, and watch how they move. By mixing formal presentation with active engagement, the program focuses on the needs of preschool children.
