The West Baton Rouge Museum has a field trip experience designed especially for children ages 3 to 6 years old. The program S is for Sugar is a 90-minute, hands-on, fun- filled adventure for kids to learn about farming, letters, and sugar!
Two friendly puppets, Sweetie Pie and Sugar Guy, lead kids through activities at carefully selected stops in the museum, at the sugar cane patch, and in a late 19th century historic sugar plantation building where the kids will engage in writing, saying and learning about the letter “S” and planting sugar cane in the ground just like Louisiana farmers! They will enjoy a shape matching game and get some easy exercise when they help squeeze cane juice from cane.
Children will come away knowing that sugar is made from plant called sugar cane, that sugar cane comes from farms, and best of all that sugar makes things sweet!
Field trip planners and educators can make reservations throughout the year. S is for Sugar is available Tuesdays through Fridays. The program is free to all West Baton Rouge Parish groups and Head Start Programs. Out-of-Parish admission is $2 per student. To make reservations and for more information please call (225) 336-2422 x 201.
