Students unearth fun at Velocity Jr. camp

Dino Dig

Dino2Area students are unearthing fun and a love of history and science through a Velocity Jr. summer camp.

Young archaeologists recently spent a week taking part in a "Dino Dig" camp that allowed them to study the history of the animals and take part in mock archeological digs.

Teacher Landon Polley said the students are experiencing "Indiana Jones-type stuff" that is reinforcing their interest in sciences and how it applies to other content areas.

"These younger students are discovering science and saying 'hey, this is fun,' " Polley said. "We can also use what we're learning today in different subjects, like history."

The five through nine year olds take part in all parts of a dig - from learning how to discover the dinosaur bones, how they are cleaned and how they are preserved.

The students are even charting their digs using math grids that break down the different areas of the dig. MORE.
