Dinosaurs

    Dr. Neal Immega brought along some dinosaur bones, teeth and fossils to share with the young audience this week.  Children asked questions about what happened to the dinosaurs and were able to identify various species by their claws or teeth.  Inda Immega helped children origami-fold paper triangles to fashion dinosaur claws.  Children took home their claws and shark teeth.

 

Next week's program is about turtles and tortoises.  Debbie Parrish will bring an assortment of rescued tortoises for us to examine and meet up close.  That program will be on Wednesday at 3 PM in the library.
