2nd Gr. Walk With the Dinosaurs
Do you know if dinosaurs are mentioned in the Bible? Did they live along with man or millions of years ago? Why did they become extinct? Are they all extinct? What can we really know about dinosaurs? Were there dinosaurs on Noah’s ark? What about fossils? How are they made? Bill and Merilee Clifton (creationists, authors, Florida Master Naturalists and science educators) will share surprising information about dinosaurs and fossils with 2nd grade students during their “Walk With Dinosaurs Workshop” on Friday, February 20th.
