Discover our daily themes!
We dig for dinosaurs! We put on our palaeontology hats and go looking for historical treasure! We learn the ins-and-outs of a paleontological dig and create our own 3D fossils.+
Can You Dig It?
We examine bones! We use our observational skills to piece together the puzzle and figure out what kind of animal we’re examining. We learn about bone shape and function, as well as placement. We get to take home bones, so we can practice putting them together.+
Pieces of our past
We investigate artifacts! We learn about patterns of wear and hypothesize about the use of unfamiliar items. We get to decorate a clay pot and use the pattern to help us reconstruct fragments of a broken pot.+
We study ancient civilizations! We learn about Pompeii and recreate the eruption of Mount Vesuvius. We discover how certain conditions can preserve objects and help us better understand ancient cultures and historical events.+
We unravel time! We discover how to date objects, using techniques like carbon dating and stratigraphy. We use a metal detector to find buried coins, and then use the skills we’ve learned to restore them to their former glory and figure out where they came from!+
