Kids enjoy dino dig at Norma Anders Library

July 12, 2013
Dysart Reporter

19 children dug into the world of dinosaurs at the Norma Anders Public Library on Wednesday, June 26, with Jason Dornbush of the Grout Museum. Dornbush shared lots of interesting dinosaur facts with the second through fifth grade children in attendance. The children got to pass around dinosaur egg shells and preserved dinosaur feces!

The Grout Museum outreach coordinator also brought a dinosaur patella (knee bone) and a mold of a young Tyrannosaurus Rex footprint that participants got to step in to see how their feet compare. On average six kid-size feet fit into the mold at a time. Children then made paper pterodactyls, got to be paleontologists as they searched for fossils in sand, and made imprints with modeling clay which they got to take home. Digging up dinosaurs at the library was dino-mite.
