Paleontologist visits

Mrs. Hoffman's ClassroomWe have been studying rocks and fossils and last week we were lucky to have a visit from Barb Beasley, a paleontologist from the Forest Service, visit us and bring samples of fossils.  She talked to us about fossils and showed us samples of fossils found at Toadstool Park and other places.  She taught us about invertebrates, vertebrates, and plants that can be found in fossil form.  She showed us a model of a giant pig's skull that lived in this area millions of years ago.

Happy Valentine's Day!
