Description

Snacks and Attacks! Kindergarten - 2nd grade: A workshop all about food. Climb your way up the food chain as we figure out who eats what. Real museum specimens will be our guides to what animals eat. We’ll excavate arrowheads as we explore how ancient humans hunted and “gather” plants to make our snacks.

Cretaceous Colorado: 3rd -5th grader: Colorado used to be an inland sea full of weird and wonderful creatures. Explore the clues they left behind, excavate a fossil, look up close at many the specimens from our collection of over half a million fossils, get a look at ancient creatures – large and small - that lived in our own backyard! Cast your own soap from a real fossil mold. Design your own Boulder undersea diorama.

Each workshop meets for three hours from 9:00 am - noon at the CU Museum of Natural History on the CU-Boulder Campus. Healthy snacks will be provided.
