Dinosaurs, Myths, and Legends! Dig up some proof when little more than fables are left behind! Learn about archaeologist, paleontologist, and the techniques scientists use to excavate and decern fact from fiction! Study bone fragments, pottery shards, amber deposits, and fossils to understand what they can tell us about history! Make and take-home projects each day like a fossil reproduction, an amber time capsule, coins from around the world!

Additional Information

Ancient Artifacts
We unravel time! We discover how to date objects,using techniques like carbon dating and stratigraphy. We use a metal detector to find buried coins,and then restore them to their former glory, and figure out where they came from!
Buried Stories
We study ancient civilizations! We learn about Pompeii and recreate the eruption of Mount Vesuvius. We discover how certain conditions can preserve objects and help us better understand ancient cultures and historical events.
Can You Dig It?
We examine bones! We use our observational skills to piece together the puzzle and figure out what kind of animal we’re examining. We learn about bone shape, function, and placement. We get to take home bones, so we can practice putting them together.
History Hunters
We dig for dinosaurs! We put on our paleontology hats and go looking for historical treasure! We learn the ins-and-outs of a paleontological dig and create our own 3D fossils.
