Pooh-inspired emotional learning exhibit

KidZone Museum

KidZone Museum’s “Hundred Acre Wood” exhibit brings to life the century-old Winnie the Pooh stories of author A.A. Milne and illustrator E.H. Shepard with a focus on social-emotional learning for children up to age 6.

The exhibit presents an opportunity for younger children to become familiar with concepts of understanding and identifying feelings, self-reflection, empathy and connection. The museum has sections representing each character and a trait: Winnie the Pooh is happy-go-lucky, Piglet is anxious, Eeyore is sad, Tigger is energetic, Kanga is nurturing, Roo is curious, Rabbit is organized and sometimes critical, and Owl is wise.

KidZone Museum has raised nearly half of the funds needed for a new, 10,500-square-foot museum at Truckee River Regional Park to include a science and art center, a teen studio, a sensory space, traveling exhibits and an expanded play space. | kidzonemuseum.org
