FIRST RELEASE FIELD TRIP – SIGN UPS CLOSED
This event is for PLA Sage Oak students and families. Students must be accompanied by an adult.
Students will learn about the sciences of archaeology, paleontology, and ecology. Students will learn about scientific processes and the technology involved in exploration and discovery. Discover the science and culture of our region! The giant Geological Timeline, leading into the Museum entrance, helps teach concepts of time and changes in life on Earth. The Hall of Archaeology introduces students to the earliest local residents and settlers (prehistoric to early 1900s). An Immersion Theater shows the animated film “Echoes of the Past,” as well as “Discovery and Recovery,” a short documentary about the archaeology and paleontology discoveries found during the Diamond Valley Lake Project. The Snapshots in Time exhibit hall contains real and replica fossils for students to learn from. Interactive displays teach them about dating fossils and how archaeologists and paleontologists work in the field and lab. Students 5 and older will also be able to access the discovery lab during our time in the science center where they will be given individual lab trays and the opportunity to sift through matrix to search for and identify real marine fossils (e.g. shark teeth) using tools such as brushes, tweezers, magnifying glasses, and screens.
