Tykes Explorers: Pondering Earth’s Past and Present   
Tuesdays, (10am & 1pm)
Spring is in the air, so let’s head outside and learn about our earth! We’ll take a look at the surface of the earth and see how it has changed over time, and then we’ll try to figure out what’s extinct and what’s still thriving. Finally we’ll dig below the surface to see what types of fossils might be hiding below the surface…including dinosaurs! 

 

Day 1: March 10 – A Changing Earth
Earth has been through a lot of changes over the last 4.5 billion years, and this week we’ll find out why! Using stream tables and the power of water, you’ll create changing landscapes just like the ones we see on earth! 

Day 2: March 17– Life on Earth 
Our earth is home to millions of living species! This week, we’ll head outside to hunt for some of them, figure out how to tell the difference between something living and something non-living, and learn how our earth is able to keep so many things alive! 

Day 3: March 24– Earth’s Time Machine
Let’s use fossils to travel back in time and see the creatures that lived here on earth before us. Discover how fossils form and what we can learn from them, handle real fossils, and make one to take home.

Day 4: March 31 – Time for Dinosaurs! 
Dinosaurs lived a long time ago, but how long is that? Explore the geologic time scale to get a sense of Earth’s past, learn about the clues Earth gives us to figure out when and where dinosaurs lived, and make your very own dinosaur habitat to take home. 

 

Saturday, March 21 (2pm)– Earth’s Time Machine
Let’s use fossils to travel back in time and see the creatures that lived here on earth before us. Discover how fossils form and what we can learn from them, handle real fossils, and make one to take home.
