Tri-Cities TN/VA: Overcast, 39.2 °F
Natural History Museum at the Gray Fossil Site
The 2012 Teacher In-Service program focuses on the science of the Gray Fossil Site by guiding you through fun activities, teaching you about the history and discovery of the site, and helping you learn more about what makes our site special and unique. Activities will include an Introductory Presentation, Tour of the Museum Exhibits, a Behind the Scenes Tour of the Preparation Lab and the Collections Range, Wet Screening on the Fossil Site, Digging, and Gray Fossil Site Sediment Picking. We will focus on the activities that bring the fossils all the way from the site to you as a museum visitor. If you plan to visit the museum in the future with your class or your family, your behind-the-scenes knowledge will be a great asset. Since you will be an active learner for most activities, we ask that you wear comfortable clothes and shoes; many of our activities will be outdoors (weather permitting). We also ask you to bring an extra pair of shoes. Dates are March 17, June 2, and September 29.
