    Have you ever wondered what it’s like to be someone or even something else? Imagine if you could try out being someone new each day? Who would you be? Maybe you would be a sailor fighting in the War of 1812, a farmer raising animals and tending crops, or even a pirate exploring the Patuxent River? If you use your imagination, you can even become an animal- like a bald eagle flying high in the sky or a tiny minnow swimming in a stream. Open up your mind and bring your imagination to life! It all begins with the words, “Imagine if….” at JPPM.
