Sternberg Museum, Part II

After we finished looking at the natural history exhibits at the Sternberg Museum in Hays, KS, we went to a little area where the kids could practice digging up dinosaur bones!

Hats on, tools in hand, they were ready for discovery.

Catherine and Joseph found a long bone.

Anthony, the world's youngest archaeologist.

They could have stayed here for a long time.

After digging up bones, we made our way to the Discovery Room, which is a homeschooler's dream!  It was chock full of fun and interesting activities for kids to do, from puzzles and games to looking at things through magnifying glasses and balancing weights on a scale.  There were lots of books, stations for drawing, stamping, and tracing, a wall of live animals in tanks, even a spot by the window for identifying cloud formations.  You could easily spend half a day in this room. 
Joseph found a friend.

An attractive corner with books, puzzles, blocks, and tubs full of interesting animal puppets.

Working on a puzzle.

Right in the middle of the room, you could climb on this giant bone.

Anthony liked this giant spider sculpture.

Another great puzzle done by Anthony and Joseph.
