Glenview Museum Uses Pizza to Teach

According to the Chicago Sun-Times, “pizza-style family fun is cooking at an exhibit at the Kohl Children’s Museum of Greater Chicago in north suburban Glenview.”

“‘Pizza: Any Way You Slice It!’ is designed to teach youngsters the basics of math by encouraging playful exploration based on one of our favorite foods. Using the activities of making pizza, delivering pizza and pretending to eat pizza, children will learn basic skills. Hands-on exhibit areas encourage counting, sorting, measuring, gathering, matching, patterning, sequencing, role-playing and sharing.”

“The exhibit continues through May 24. Museum admission is $7.50 for children and adults; $6.50 for seniors 55 years and older. Hours are 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday; 9:30 a.m. to noon Monday; noon to 5 p.m. Sunday. The museum is at 2100 Patriot Blvd. For more information, call (847) 832-6600 or visit www.kohlchildrens museum.org.”
