Can you Dig it - Fossil Hunt - Do you Dig Dinosaurs?
(Boys and Girls ages 6-11)
Archaeology and Paleontology seem like big words to kids. Now Sciensational Workshops for Kids 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. You will make a plaster fossil replica of an ammonite, Tyrannosaurus rex tooth or choose from other molds. See and work with our rock and mineral collection. Be a rock hound and identify different rocks and minerals. Come join Sciensational Workshops for Kids. It’ll be fun and educational.
