First Grade Visits Dinosaur World
First grade students and teachers at NorthLake Park Elementary School visited Dinosaur World in Plant City. The children were able to participate in many interactive shows. They took a guided tour with a “paleontologist” through a cave, a dig site and a workstation. They watched a demonstration on the correct way to excavate a fossil from a site and then were able to dig for their own fossils in a stocked area that had various items. The children selected their three favorite fossils to take home. In the Dino Gem Excavation, the children found gems, arrowheads and real minerals that they took home. The Bone Yard was a big hit as they had tools to start excavating a 27-foot skeleton located under the sand. This was truly a fascinating journey of learning in a prehistoric playground for our first-grade students.
