Students Celebrate National Fossil Day

Buddy Bison welcomed over 250 students to the National Mall to celebrate the FIRST Annual Fossil Day on October 13th! Eighth grade students from Jefferson-Houston Elementary School enjoyed the grounds of the Washington Monument.

Kids were able to sift through mounds of dirt to find shark teeth and other fossil treasures, created their own plaster casts of shells and stones, and talked to real-life National Park Service and Smithsonian archaeologists and paleontologists. Throughout the day, they went on a scavenger hunt in the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History and learned about Washington, D.C. archaeology. All students were sworn in as Jr. Paleontologists at the end of the day by National Park Service Park Rangers.
