Course Description

Archaeology and paleontology seem like big words to kids. This camp will makes them come alive. Each child will partake in a simulated fossil excavation, uncovering the different bones of a dinosaur. Each child will then assemble the bones to form a completed 3-dimensional dinosaur to be taken home. We will bring the excavation tools, labels and specimen bags. We will use our geological time and fossil charts. You will make a plaster fossil replica of an ammonite, Tyrannosaurus rex tooth, or choose from other molds. You'll identify 20 million-year-old shark's teeth and see other fossil replicas. See and work with our rock and mineral collection. Be a rock hound and identify different rocks and minerals. See and hold our giant pumice rock specimen - it’s from Mt. St. Helens. It'll be fun and educational. Must register at least seven days before class starts.
