Maryland Independent - - Community Forum - CHAR­LIE WRIGHT

Lo­cal kids gath­ered at Po­tomac Branch Li­brary on Satur­day to learn fun facts about wildlife at the Awe­some An­i­mal GrossOut event. Chil­dren’s Su­per­vi­sor Sarah An­der­son and Chil­dren’s As­so­ciate Laura John­son taught the six chil­dren and their par­ents about an­i­mal bowel move­ments and creepy-crawly in­sects, while en­cour­ag­ing them to check out books on the top­ics. Af­ter col­lect­ing im­i­ta­tion rab­bit fe­ces and mim­ick­ing cock­roach move­ments, the group made their own slime.
