Prehistoric Fossil Discoveries  (Ages 8 - 12)

Come meet some old fossils at Hitchcock. This workshop will be an indoor exploration of fossilized animals and plants, many of which were preserved long before the dinosaurs walked the earth. We will learn about ancient mollusks, prehistoric sharks and two-hundred-million-year-old fish that lived right here in Massachusetts. We will hold trilobites twice as old as those fish and we will sift through sand looking for some shark teeth and other small fossils to keep. We will see how fossils were formed and we will learn how to make our own fossil replicas. (1 class)
