The World and Me Family Program: Prehistoric Sea MonstersKids & Families
Saturday, August 13, 2022, 10:30am – 12pm EDT
Learn more about your place in the world through explorations of nature and culture.
For this month's program, families will explore the discovery of mosasaurs, sharks and fish fossils in Angola, Africa. After a book reading of Tylosaurus by Gerry Bailey, participants will sift for and identify fossils to learn more about how paleontologists make discoveries about animals that lived long ago and are no longer alive today.
The World & Me programs are developed for families with children aged 3-8. Activities are designed for children and caregivers to explore science concepts and skills together.
Cost: Free. Registration is required to secure your family's space in the program.
