Designed for the home and classroom by the Smithsonian Science Education Center and Filament Games, this game teaches students how to describe movement and motion while visiting exotic animals at the Smithsonian National Zoological Park. Each animal has coloring-page printouts, so you can print and color your favorite critter.
Selected stories from the application will be featured on the Smithsonian’s “Stories from Main Street” website. Help us document the rich history of America’s small towns with stories that exemplify the excitement, diversity and creativity of their citizens. The Smithsonian wants to hear from you!
We thank our contributors from around the world for adding great stories to the database.

This juried exhibition of portraits includes 48 works created from both traditional media like oil paintings, drawings and photographs as well as more surprising materials such as rice, glitter, thread and video. The museum received over 3,000 entries in a variety of visual arts media. The winner of the National Portrait Gallery’s third Outwin Boochever Portrait Competition received a grand prize of $25,000 and a commission to create a portrait of a living individual for the museum’s permanent collection.
The competition and exhibition are made possible by the vision and generosity of Virginia Outwin Boochever. More information at: http://portraitcompetition.si.edu
