CBO student workers and volunteers designed a table where enthusiastic guests classified plants, animals, and people to one of three habitats: the African Savannah, Galapagos, or Yellowstone. This activity engaged motor skills, memory, and abstract thinking. Prizes were awarded for effort. Volunteer graduate student Leigh-Ann Tower reflects, “I was so happy to have other workers come up to me throughout the night, curious about the fun, interesting activity that they heard all the kids talking about. Music to my ears! I could not be more pleased with the outcome.
