RBCM@Home (Kids)

Building a Critter with Dr. Joel Gibson

Join Curator of Entomology Dr. Joel Gibson for some anthropod making fun.

All anthropods, land critters, are made up of parts (legs, antennae, mouthparts, eyes, wings, body sections). Each of these parts can be in different shapes, sizes, and colours. The number of parts and how they are arranged tells you if a critter is an insect, a spider, a millipede, or a centipede. Let's explore these parts and get creative with builiding a critter and finding out what kind of critter it is.

RBCM @ Home (kids) is hosted by Chris O'Connor.

What you'll need:

  • Blank pieces of paper
  • Something to draw with (Pencil crayons, markers, crayons, etc.)

RBCM @ Home (Kids) is like a museum playdate online. Visit with members of the museum staff who are working from home, along with families from across BC, as we make and learn together. Each session will have some kind of making activity, so get your paper and pencil crayons ready. RBCM @ Home(Kids) takes place on Wednesdays at 11 am, visit our calendar for topics, presenters and a list of materials so you can join in with hands-on activities at home.

For adults and youth, check out RBCM @ Home. This program takes place on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 12pm and highlights members of the curatorial and collections staff who are working from home during the pandemic and discover how they do their work, how their work is reflected in their homes and what they're working on now.
