PLUM LANDING on PBS KIDS

It's Plum's birthday today! It was a year today when we launched PLUM LANDING. Thank you for joining us on the journey!

Looking for a last minute, easy costume to make for Halloween? Look no more! Check out this DIY PLUM LANDING mask.

In this after school pathway, kids see how water moves through a landscape, and how people affect aquatic ecosystems.

Do more outside. Hiking, skiing, kayaking, etc. Enjoy the beauty of nature and all it has to offer.

In this Afterschool Activity, kids explore how the plants and animals in an ecosystem depend on one another. They'll learn about Ecosystems, Biodiversity, Habitats, Weather and Climate.

In this afterschool activity, kids explore biodiversity, not just in the rainforest, but right in their own neighborhood.

In this 1 hour pathway, watch a video about the Australian Desert. Then try a hands-on activity to learn about Evaporation and the Water Cycle.

GOAAAAL!!! It's World Cup time and even Plum is pumped. Go outside and play! #WorldCup #playoutdoors
