After a long bus ride, we arrived just in time to attend a live animal show about how some animals mimic other animals. The live animals were a snake and an owl. Some of the students stayed after the show to see them up close and to ask questions.
Learning about how these two snakes look alike but are very different.
Another example of animal mimicry.
Then we went to the dinosaur exhibit and took some group photos!
Our class in front of an actual triceratops from Hell Creek, Montana. This is the same place that Mrs. Riordan, Mrs. Porcello and Mrs. Cooke went to DIG School to learn about paleontology and to dig for fossils.
How many students’ hands can fit in a T-Rex footprint?
Our class beneath the T-Rex!

After breaking for lunch, we got to explore the museum to see many other exciting exhibits.
