Pedaling Through Time

Have you ever ridden a bicycle? Once you know how, it is easy and fun. But bicycles didn’t start out that way. The first bike was made of wood with steel wheels, and it had no pedals. To operate it you had to run. It weighed 48 pounds! That may be heavier than you are! Inventors built on one another’s ideas to continue to improve the bicycle. Today, more than 15 MILLION bikes are sold each year. Take a close look at old and new bikes, and then discover the amazing history of bicycles through a timeline challenge. Share your own ideas about how you would improve the bicycle.

Family Food Favorites

Family history is often centered around the foods we eat and the traditions that go along with them. Can you think of some of your family traditions? Do you eat the same meal on certain days or holidays, like pizza every Friday night or grilled hamburgers on the 4th of July? In this activity, kid’s will explore what their favorite foods and food traditions are and what that can tell them about themselvs and their family.

Name Game

Names can be very interesting. Some last names tell us where our ancestors came from. For instance, the last name Kent tells us that a person’s ancestors probably came from England, since Kent is a place in England. Some last names can tell us what our ancestors did for a living, like the name Cooper. Did you know that a cooper is a barrel builder? A person whose last name is Cooper probably had a long-ago relative who built barrels for a living. In this activity, kids are encouraged to do some investigating into where their name(s) come from and what they mean.
