Elementary Science Series: Fabulous Fossils!
August 4, 2018 @ 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM
To register please email Judy at firstname.lastname@example.org
The class includes sets of real fossils (dinosaur bones, trilobites, crinoids, and real amber (some specimens contain insects) for teams of three students to investigate, along with fossil shark teeth from the largest prehistoric shark, and jaws from a modern shark.
Each class (for students in grades 1 – 8) will begin at 10 AM in the Manito Park Meeting Room just east of Gaiser Conservatory and will last 1 to 1 1/2 hours. Classes are limited to 30 students so that everyone has space and materials with which to experiment and learn. Parents are welcome to attend as well but will be seated in “Observation Seats” around the classroom. Interest is expected to be high so you will want to register your child soon. To assure participation in these free programs you MUST register your child as walk-in space may be limited. Due to the nature of the classes, children who arrive late will not be able to participate since they will miss directions, ground rules, and safety rules. Please plan to arrive at Manito Meeting Room at least 5 minutes early so your child will not be disappointed.
