Keeping a Thoroughbred happy and healthy is much like taking care of a pet at home. Learning teamwork is essential in preparing a horse for the Kentucky Derby, and you’ll act out how various jobs in the stables are performed in this interactive experience! Bring a stuffed horse (or any stuffed animal) to get to practice your horsemanship skills!
Let’s celebrate! The concept and importance of cultural traditions is explored before we attend our very own Kentucky Derby. We’ll act out the day as we participate in the many Kentucky Derby traditions - maybe even one of you will win the Derby!
Horses Tales centers stories featuring both fictional and nonfictional horses. This interactive program allows students to participate in stories while learning early reading strategies.
Fashion takes center stage as you explore how this long-standing tradition began and has changed throughout time! This interactive race through Derby fashion history will give you a chance to experience a favorite aspect of the Derby! You’ll even get a chance to try out your own fashion creativity!
