What is a fossil? How do we use fossils to develop an understanding of what the life was like millions of years ago? What other animals lived long ago? Students will learn how to interpret fossils and what they teach us about the lives of dinosaurs.

Virtual Classes are hands-on, inquiry-based learning sessions for elementary students. Students work in groups with Museum specimens sent to your site prior to program. Programs are 50 minutes long and correlate to the North Carolina Science Essential Standards.

Registration information: Participants must have some form of videoconferencing equipment or software to participate. A test with your site is required prior to scheduling. Programs must be scheduled six weeks in advance.
