2008 Building a Dinosaur at Vincent

On April 9, 2008, Ms. Janna from the Lorain County Metro Park System came for a visit. The program was called "Constructasaurus." It was about being a paleontologist. Students saw examples of fossils, a mold of a big footprint, a tyrannosaurus tooth, and a dinosaur egg. They learned that dinosaur eggs were oval. The eggs they saw were more like bird eggs than a reptiles which are normally round.

Ms. Janna spoke to the students about how paleontologists have to piece together bones like a big puzzle. She also showed students four different dinosaur pictures and told them to figure out which dinosaur they would be helping to construct. Each student had a chance to help put together a giant Stegosaurus. Everyone had a lot of fun!
