Children become food, fossils, and paleontologists in Did Dinosaurs Poop?, an exciting new exhibition opening February 9, 2013 at the North Museum of Natural History & Science. Designed for families with children ages 4-10, this exhibition presents a fun, colorful approach to learning about fossils and dino diets from long ago. Visitors take a digestion journey, traveling as dinosaur “food” from tooth to tush discovering how poop can become a fossil. They also take on the role of paleontologist to uncover fossils at a “dig site,” examine them, and figure out where – and when! – they came from. Through bright graphics, hands-on interactives, touchable fossil casts, and purposeful play, visitors will see how stones, bones, and teeth tell us about dino diet, understand the process of fossilization, begin to reconstruct past ecological webs and become scientists themselves, discovering how to learn from the fossil record.
