Play Fossil-ologist, Pin the 'Scale' on the Reptile, Mammal...Or Not? And Bat Tag; be a penguin emperor dad guarding the egg; do the snake slither; make brain coral; and draw caricatures. Give scientific concepts real-life meaning with geologic time rap, a dinosaur clothesline time line, a huge animal kingdom button sort, and an after-dinner family chicken-bone reconstruction. Investigate the dino-bird connection (and how to use the Internet for late-breaking news); the hundred-year Brontosaurus mistake; how sharks float; why ostriches don't fly; and the horning instinct of green sea turtles. Yes, here kids learn that nature's history is a very happening thing.
