Ranch Kindergarten Visits the Museum

Ranch kindergartners had the privilege of visiting the Arizona Museum of Natural History in Mesa.

Students prepared for their trip by reading many books about dinosaurs. They also watched several educational videos to give them an idea as to the size and habits of different dinosaurs. Students compared the different sizes and learned that dinosaurs and humans never lived at the same time!

During their visit, students had the opportunity to view dinosaur fossils and get a true feel of their size. The museum also offers many interactive activities for students and chaperones to explore. One of the favorite activities was definitely panning for gold. Several little paleontologists also took advantage of the museum’s Paleo Pit to uncover some fossils!

The day was full of hands on learning and loads of fun!
