+ Can you dig it?
Third- and fourth-grade students of Temple Beth Sholom had a chance to brush up on their paleontology skills last week while digging for faux dinosaur bones. Students helped design and build the excavation site that was filled with sand. Replica pieces of a wooden tyrannosaurus rex, triceratops and stegosaurus were hidden for the junior paleontologists to unearth.
The project is part of an educational unit in teacher Dan Michael’s science class. The class will continue to study fossils, minerals and rocks for two months.
