Peculiar Paleontology: Week III

This was the third in our series of Paleontology classes at the Carnegie Museum of Natural History.

We did not get a newsletter this week, so I’m guessing what was covered based on the items the girls brought home. They put together a “puzzle”, which was a paper t-rex skeleton that had been cut into pieces. They had to put them together and glue the skeleton onto a piece of construction paper.

They also put together other paper skeletons, some by gluing pieces onto paper and some by gluing parts together with straws as “connectors”.

They made a mask for a craft, and also took a quick trip into the museum.

The final activity was putting together a skeleton with a teammate. I think it was sort of a race, because S7 made a big deal out of the fact that she and her partner finished first!

ETA: The newsletter for this week was available the next time we went for class.
