Backyard Explorers: Fun with Fossils
ABOUT THIS EVENT
Dig in and discover what might be buried in your own backyard! Traces of ancient life are all around us, so join us in Tree Tunes to learn how to find them. Learn about fossils, dinosaurs and pretend to be a paleontologist.
Dino Dig: Use brushes and tools to uncover dinosaur skeletons, sharks’ teeth and arrow heads to learn about archaeology and paleontology.
Dinosaur Impressions: Make your own fossils by making dinosaur impressions in playdough to learn how fossils are created.
Precious Panning: Pan and sift for gems to learn about the rocks and geology of NC that you can find in your very own backyard. (Did you know the emerald is our state gem?)
