Dinosaurs may be extinct, but they are very much alive in Camp Jurassic. Campers explore a variety of dinosaurs and their known habitats. We examine the latest science available on dinosaur extinction, the Jurassic environment, and dinosaur behavior. In this unit we also examine the rocks, minerals, and fossils that tell the story of time and how dinosaurs survived day to day all those millions of years ago. Our project based class allows children to see the amazing relationship between geology and biology first hand. This camp is a must for those kids who love to scale the world of the Jurassic era.
Sample Projects: Dinosaur Model, Panning for Gems and Minerals, Building a Volcano, Casting a Sea Shell Fossil, and Dinosaur Dig.
In addition: Campers will work with additional take home projects. Special emphasis is placed on observation, inference, data collection, and just plain old fun! This is Geology 101!
Note: Camp rates may vary from location to location.
