Today, we had a unique learning experience in our 6th grade classes. Alabama Museum of Natural History (AMNH ) visited the 6th Grade Earth Science Class virtually. AMNH offers a variety of in-school programs such as fossil history, watershed education, and rocks and minerals. It was a distance visit via Skype to talk about fossils. Museum experts presented materials and interacted with students through a digital presentation. They showed pieces from their collection as well as their work environment. Students were able to ask their questions and learn more about what does being a paleontologist mean and what s/he does. It was a great day. We are looking forward to host them again!
