The difference between a house and a home
MILLERTON — With a stack of fresh newspapers at their disposal, a touch of imagination and a teacher’s helping hand, young readers set to work in fabricating their own newspaper domes at the NorthEast-Millerton Library’s most recent Curious STEAM Investigators (CSI) program, with former Webutuck teacher Lynn Buckley, on Wednesday, July 28.
Held at 4:30 p.m. inside the library annex, Buckley taught just two children about different types of houses and read aloud, “The House That Once Was,” all while encouraging her eager students to think about the differences between a house and a home.
For the program’s hands-on activity, as the enthusiastic duo fabricated dome structures out of newspapers, Buckley encouraged them to think about how they could turn their houses into homes and build them large enough to support people inside.
The lifelong educator also coaxed them to think about how houses are built in different sizes and from different materials, and the differences and similarities between different housing types.
