Paleontology

Every meeting has a short lesson about a specific dinosaur and what scientist know about it. We get to look at some photos of fossils and learn fun facts about the dinosaurs. Every week, children in this program will get a fact sheet about the dinosaur that they can color and take home with them.

Vocabulary

Each week we learn new names of different dinosaurs and how to pronounce them. We also learn the meaning behind the names and other words associated with that dinosaur. New words and definitions are included on the fact sheet, along with how to write the dinosaur’s name.

Geography

We talk about dinosaurs across the globe! Every month when we explore a new dinosaur, we go over where that dinosaur was first found and where it would have lived when it was alive. We also learn about what the climate would have been like and what kind of food the dinosaur would have been able to eat in that area of the world.

Problem Solving

This program involves several hands-on, problem-solving activities every meeting. We have scavenger hunts, crafts, puzzles and more. This program also has an interactive presentation discussion about each dinosaur that will challenge the children’s knowledge about them.

Q&A About The Program

Nope! Some of our Dinosaur Club members just come through the school year, through the summer, or every other month. However, the more you come the more stickers you will get!

Our age range is a recommendation based on the types of activities in the program. This program requires reading, writing, and problem solving. However, we do allow younger children into the program! If you think this is something your child will like, bring them and try it out!

Yes, this program is open to both boys and girls in 1st-5th grade!

This program, all of the crafts and activities, admission to the museum, and parking are all free and open to the public. Donations are accepted.

Nope! The programs are based on the dinosaur, but you do not have to have the dinosaur to participate. We have many of the dinosaurs here! If you have a dinosaur, you are welcome to bring it with you!
