Fossil Class! Find, Create, Learn

Fossil Class! Find, Create, Learn

25.00

The class, co-taught by Kate Rich and Rochelle Collins, is a mix of interactive instruction on what fossils are common to this area, and how they were formed, with samples to touch, see, and feel! The class will begin with field work in Turtle Creek (within the grounds of Harmon Park) searching for and collecting fossils. Next, there will be an art project where kids will create their own ‘fossil’. We will end by asking the children to present their findings to the group.

***All classes held at Harmon Park. For ages 6 - 12 years old. Activities and lesson will vary with each class, so registering for more than one will insure that you child will be learning new facts and creating new art projects.***

Plan to Bring:

  • Clothes & shoes that can get wet and dirty. Flip flops or open backed shoes not recommended.

  • A dry change of clothes.

  • A bag to keep any finds- I have discovered that those mesh bags that lemons or oranges come in are GREAT: they let the water and sand out, but keep rocks in. It may also be handy to have a small plastic sandwich bag too, though, as some of the fossil samples are very small (like the crinoid), and could fall out of the mesh bag.
