Story Time in Arabic for Kids at ACC
The Arab American Cultural & Community Center (ACC) announces Story Time in Arabic! for Kids 2 to 5 years old.
We are excited to share that we will start offering Arabic Story time every Sunday at the ACC. It will be lead by one of our weekend Arabic School parents beginning this Sunday, March 3rd at 12 PM.
During Arabic story time we will be reading books, singing songs and crafting with a different theme each week.
Arabic story time is geared for kids between the ages of 2 through 5 years old. Siblings are always welcomed.
This will be a fun way for parents and their kids to bond with each other, while introducing and teaching children Arabic at an early age.
Attendance is Free but due to limited space, it will be first come first seated
***Parental participation and supervision is required during Arabic story time.***

Hall of Ancient Egypt
Permanent Collection
Safely ensconced in the Sahara desert, and drawing its lifeblood from the river Nile, ancient Egyptian civilization flourished for more than three millennia. A quintessential example of what archaeologists call a primary civilization,” ancient Egypt did not rely on inspiration from others to develop its own architecture, writing and religion—all of Egyptian culture was developed “in house.”

The themes of writing, religion, natural resources and of course mummification will be explored in this new permanent exhibition hall.

When: Members Preview: May 24-30, 2013; Public Opening: May 31, 2013
Location: Houston Museum of Natural Science, 5555 Hermann Park Drive, Houston 77030

Ever since the late 18th century, the Western world has been exploring Egypt. This hall will present artifacts collected during these early days of investigations, and will also compare old-style archaeology with 21st-century approaches, such as using satellite imagery and remote sensing to locate and map ancient settlements. The Museum’s own mummy, Ankh Hap, will be moved to his new surroundings in time for the opening on May 24, 2013.
