Pawhuska Library

Children learn about animals

The Oklahoma City Zoo’s ROARchestra program gave a presentation at Pawhuska Public Library as part of their summer reading program July 13, which 51 children attended.

The animals the zoo brought to the Pawhuska Library included: Felicity Socks, the ferret; Java, the jungle toad; and a pair of Madagascar hissing cockroaches.

The program included a slide show of animal habitats such as prairie, rain forest, and seashore. Zoo presenters shared the sounds each animal makes.

They also explained that animals make sounds for three reasons: to find friends, to defend their territory, and to scare predators.

Throughout the program, children interacted with the presenter and performed animal sounds. At the end of the program all the children’s voices joined together to create their own, original ROARchestra.

From 10:30 - 11:30 a.m. Friday, the library will have its final program for Summer Reading 2018, exploring how people have made and listened to music.
