Afterschool Activities: A Spot of Green

In “A Spot of Green,” kids explore how city animals, including migrating birds, rely on parks and other green spaces to survive. These activities include a PLUM LANDING animation and a related hands-on activity, both with extension ideas, to provide about one hour of programming.

Start by having kids watch The Haunted Shipyard Mystery, a short animated video in which Brad and Oliver are sent by Plum to investigate mysterious sounds in a shipyard. What could it be? Hop in the bubble and find out! Then, head outdoors to act like birds migrating through local green spaces with the hands-on activity Migration Challenge. If time permits, wrap up your day by completing one or more of the “Explore Some More” activities.
