10–12 years old "Traces of the Ice Age" workshop

Traces of the Ice Age

Is it cold out? Not as cold as it was during the last Ice Age! Which plants and animals were around at that time, and how do we know? Like a real paleontologist, you'll look for evidence. Rummage through a tray of fossil finds and investigate which animal each bone belongs to. Your findings and any new questions will go on a giant research poster to take back to school with you.

 At this time, our programs are offered in Dutch only.
