Tickets for this workshop are available from Guest Services on arrival.

Did you know that some rocks have a story to tell? They teach the true account of what happened in history, about 4,000 years ago. We call these rocks, fossils. A fossil is the evidence that something was once alive, is now dead, was preserved quickly, and has become part of the rock layers of the earth.

Did you ever wonder:

If your child is curious about the answers to these or other fossil-related questions, then Fun with Fossils is for them! During this workshop they will learn the seven major periods of history as told to us in the Bible, using words that begin with the letter “C”. It will be demonstrated during which “C” of history fossils were formed. Your child will learn about common fossils, getting to look at and handle many examples. They’ll even get to take home some fossils as a reminder of what they’ve learned. At the end of the workshop, students make a beaded shark tooth necklace as a souvenir of their visit to the class. The bead colors will remind them of the 7 C’s of history and the shark tooth is a fossil.

Fun with Fossils is available for ages 5-12.

This program is open to children ages 5 to 12. Tickets for the program are just $3.50. Parents can accompany their children at no additional charge, but do need to reserve a free observer ticket.
