Crater Rock Museum – Kid Day, Archeology & Earth Sciences

Kids Day, August 9, explore the worlds of Archaeology and Earth Sciences. Archaeologists find and figure out ancient cultures and artifacts, and Geologists figure out how the earth is stuck together!  Learn how this is done at Kids Day! The worlds of Archaeology and Earth Sciences are exciting and….totally mysterious. When you grow up, maybe you’ll find something as neat, and old, and totally unique as a fragment of Aboriginal rock art on granite. Archaeologist Bryce Barker said that an Aboriginal rock art found in an Australian Outback cave “was made 28,000 years ago, making it the oldest in Australia and among the oldest in the world”!  Another Archaeologist uncovered ancient bones, in which some DNA had been preserved. When they’re analyzed by Anthropologists, we’ll have a better idea of what an Iron Age man looked like, and what they ate! AND Children – dig for rocks in our rock yard – just like a real rock hound, for just 25 cents per pound.

Although classes are geared to elementary school aged children, all ages are welcome
