Dino-Mania: Mud Fossil Prints

24 06 2010

ACM Dino-Mania campers are learning how to become true ‘paleontologists’  and ‘archeologists’ this week. As they are learning about various types of dinosaurs, they are learning how to recognize their footprints so they can be better fossil hunters.

Did you know Texas has a state stone that is actually a fossil? That’s right, and it is called petrified palm wood to be exact. Today our campers made their own mud fossil foot prints and used their dino-knowledge to create them! Here are some of our campers hard at work…
