Session 3 PM: Fossil Finders
Session 3 PM: June 24 - July 5 (no camp on July 4)
Age / grade level: K-1st
Teacher: Mrs. Kaitlin Redborg, B.A., M.F.A.
Description: Join us on our expedition into the past as we learn about the animals that inhabited our planet millions of years ago. Your child will participate in a variety of fun activities, read stories, and make crafts to learn all about paleontology. We will look at real fossils and do some digging of our own where each child will get to take home a plant or animal fossil. We will use the tools Paleontologists use to prepare fossils and make plaster casts of animal tracks like the pros. Each day we will explore a different period of geological time starting with the beginning of life on Earth. Find out what made the dinosaurs and Saber toothed tigers evolve to live during their time and learn what we think might have happened to their species. Make the past come alive for your child!
