Take a trip to Kenya without leaving Chattanooga! Kenya's Kids invites families to discover what life is like for children in Kenya today, a country both technologically-advanced and filled with longtime traditions. As they travel through five immersive environments, children can compare the similarities and differences between their lives and those of children in the East African country of Kenya.
- Experience a rural home and learn about water conservation
- Use a beautiful Khanga cloth to carry a baby on their back
- Dress as a Maasai, one of 43 ethnic groups in Kenya
- Learn Swahili using touchscreen notebooks just like students in Kenya in the school
- Convert dollars to shillings and "shop" in an outdoor market and at a duka, tiny shops found throughout Kenya
- Become a ranger and drive a safari vehicle to learn about the animals that live on Kenya's vast savanna at the national reserve
- Become a keeper at an elephant orphanage that cares for abandoned baby animals and learn about animal conservation
In addition to all the fun Kenya's Kids has to offer, CDM will host Kenya's Kids Event Days February 22, March 28 and May 3 from 1-3 p.m. During these event days, families can further explore Kenyan culture through activities led by Kenyan-born members of the Chattanooga community.
Kenya's Kids was created by The Magic House, St. Louis Children's Museum.
