Well -- we're not exactly goddesses, and we're not exactly paleontologists.
But we sure felt like both during the Galvin Middle School WINS Fossil Workshop!
Mrs. Birtwell went to Kansas during Spring Break 2003, and dug some fossils for us to clean.
We learned what animals these fossils represent, and that they lived during the "Carboniferous Period of the Paleozoic Era". In other words, these animals lived about a hundred million years before the dinosaurs appeared on Earth!
