Peep's World

Peep's World



Dig up hidden treasures in Raven’s Ravine, explore the waterfall in Catfish Creek, and make your very own silly shadows in the Deep Dark woods! Peep’s World, part of the Carolyn and Peter Lynch Early Learning Gallery, invites parents and their budding young explorers to investigate the wonder of water and the amazing shapes in shadows, and gives children aged three to five a chance to develop important science skills like observing, comparing and predicting. While learning these science skills, children can also practice their motor skills by scooping and pouring water, and making shadows with their bodies and hands. This exhibit even offers tips for parents to continue the science learning at home all while transporting visitors into the world of the characters from WGBH’s Emmy award-winning science program “Peep and the Big Wide World.” Parents and children alike learn alongside Peep, Chirp and Quack that science, and science learning, can be found anywhere! Early experiences impact the architecture of the maturing brain. Like building a house, Peep’s World provides STEM experiences for children that help establish a sturdy foundation for later complex science and math thinking.
