|Learning about Life Through the Ages|
On Tuesday, we learned about Geological Time. Campers made flip books to visualize how the Earth has changed throughout the years and put together a Pangaea puzzle. Their counselors took them on a tour through our Hall of Evolution to see how life has changed, from the Cambrian explosion to now! We rounded out the day by making scrolls showing geological time and important dates in history, such as the K-T Impact.

Our last day was about the Ice Age. Campers learned about the impact of humans on Mastodon populations in North America and all about the La Brea tar pits of modern day California. We studied some of our Museum's Ice Age animals, including the Sabertooth, which campers then made a mask of.
