March Break Madness: Past Times on Planet Earth!
Updated: Mar 8, 2022
Are you excited for March Break? So are we! In this blog post, we'll give you a sneak peek at some of the fun programs that we have planned for those of you taking a break from school!
Every year, we try to come up with a theme that will appeal to everyone. In past years, we've had fun with themes such as outer space and animals from around the world. This year, we're pleased to be back for our first in-person March Break in two years! We thought it would be fun to offer programming centred around people and animals that inhabited our planet in the past. Read on to learn about all the fun activities we have in store for you!
