Students in TK – second grades visited the Fossil Discovery Center in Chowchilla yesterday and had a great time! The students learned about the extinct wildlife that roamed the valley. All of the fossils on display were discovered in a local landfill. An employee was digging a new hole and hit a bone. The bone belonged to a Wooly Mammoth. Soon many fossils were uncovered and thanks to some caring people and hard work they are on display. The animals lived and died in this very area 700,000 years ago. The students learned about the environment and how it has changed over time. They learned how the fossils were discovered and how they remove them from the ground. Students also had a chance to pretend to be paleontologists and dig for fossils. They loved it!
