Storytime Science for Kids Online: The Food Episode

May 27, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Join us for Storytime Science-a storybook read-aloud, followed by a simple activity geared toward young children. This May, the Exploratorium’s own Vivian Altmann reads Every Night is Pizza Night by J. Kenji Lopez-Alt, illustrated by Gianna Ruggiero.

Pipo loves pizza. She thinks it’s the best! But a tour of her neighborhood opens up a world of yumminess. Pizza is the best, but it’s not the only best.

After the story, try out a couple of fun activities: dye some vegetables from the inside out and make your own chemical reaction from basic kitchen ingredients!

You’ll need:

For blue celery:
One stalk of celery with leaves attached
One leaf of baby bok choy
One leaf of white endive (Try other leafy vegetables, too!)
Food coloring-especially blue, red, or purple
One glass with a bit of water in it

For the chemical reaction:
Baking soda
White vinegar
Food coloring (optional)
A glass
A pie pan or tray for catching spills

Poetry corner:
Last but not least, stick around for two Shel Silverstein poems and a traditional Japanese haiku.
