On Friday 3/20/20, Museum Educator Carolyn introduced Milton the giant African millipede. We got to meet the most charismatic millipede around and learn all about his anatomy and role in the ecosystem.
Watch the video online HERE.
Our “Meet Milton the Millipede” at-home activity encourages you to use your thumbs and coloring supplies to create your own millipede. Simply put your thumbs into the ink and create a chain of thumbprints down the page. Then, use your coloring supplies to add antennae, eyes and a mouth to the first thumbprint, the head. Finally, add the correct number of legs to the rest of your thumbprints. Try using this fun guide to create a series of different types of bugs with your thumbs and coloring supplies.
