Junior Paleontologists

We had our first SCIENCE Friends Co-op this morning.  The topic this month is dinosaurs and fossils. We had a dig site in the backyard.  The kids worked together to excavate all the fossils and then sort and put pieces together.  Then we had to research a little to figure out there were real opossum bones in the mix.  We made our own trace fossils. Discovered how huge a T-Rex really was and worked as partners to chisel out some other skeletons.  The time flew by and the kids seemed to love every minute of it.  I didn't really have a chance to take many pictures.
