A couple of things came across my radar that I wanted to let you parents of younger students know about.
One the Woodland Park Zoo is having a Hippo Weigh-in Contest for its two hippos, Water Lily and Guadalupe. Entries taken until Jan. 27th. Might be a good research project for your kids to look up the average weight of a female hippo and, using math (gasp!) figure out an average.
Also, the Seattle International Film Festival is having a Films4Families Series that started last week but continues through Feb. 26th. The films each show a couple of weekends. The first in the series is ET, then The Adventures of Baron Munchausen, a Looney Tunes Cartoon Festival and then The 5,000 Fingers of Dr. T. (I will be attending the Looney Tunes Cartoon Festival as I love those great old ones.)
