In the return of the Investigating Dinosaurs exhibit, young visitors can become Junior Paleontologists and explore how we know what we know about dinosaurs. How do we know what dinosaurs looked like, how they walked or where they lived? Within five interactive stations, children will have the opportunity to uncover a dinosaur fossil, puzzle together a dinosaur skeleton, compare your footprints to a dinosaur print, create a landscape for dinosaurs to live in and make a dinosaur rubbing. This engaging exhibit provides many ways for children to use critical thinking skills such as analyzing evidence and logical reasoning, as well as open-ended imaginative play.
