Adam's 1st grade class went on a fossil field trip to the children's museum up in Everett this past Thursday. I went along and had so much fun with Adam and 3 of his friends! They had been studying dinosaurs, so the main part of the field trip was to go to attend a fossil class, but we also got to spend time playing around at the museum. I didn't get many pictures - but we had so much fun!
They have a very cool light and sound display. This is Adam playing with it.
We learned all about different kinds of fossils, and then got to sort a whole bin of them into their different categories.
They did a fossil dig and found plaster fossils that were replicas of actual dinosuar fossils.
and then got to paint them with coffee to make them look old.
