James went to a Dino Dig yesterday. It was really good! The program is 3-1/2 hours long and is good for all elementary ages. James was put in a small group and they worked together to uncover six bones from a box of sand. Beforehand they were given instruction on what they were looking for and how to work like a paleontologist. Afterwards, there was a long but engaging presentation on how the bones fit together, the anatomy of the dinosaur, and how a paleontologist can use the clues from the bones to discover how the dinosaur died.
And the phrase we never ever heard? "Millions and millions of years ago" Way cool! The woman who did our program goes to the church where the program was held
