How do skyscrapers get built? How do we know what pieces go where? Kids will learn about the construction process in a reading of Susan L. Roth’s Hard Hat Area. This story follows a girl, Kristen, as she discovers the tools, planning, and teamwork needed to build TALL! After the read-aloud, we’ll put our skills to the test and build our own skyscrapers! Teamwork, determination, and lots of tape will be key! Recommended for ages 3-8.

This is an in-person children’s program that meets at the Skyscraper Museum, 39 Battery Pl.
