    Sizing Up Turkeys

    This is a middle school math lesson about proportions.  It might be a fun activity the week of Halloween or Thanksgiving.  Students use 3D fossil turkey leg bones to hypothesize what future turkeys could fictionally look like if the growth rate were to remain constant.  Although with that scenario we may want to call it “Monster Turkeys”.  Ha ha…

    2018 Wenas Mammoth Foundation’s Paleontology Youth Summer Day Camp:  This was our first camp and it was a big success.  We had sixteen 4th through 9th graders who were full of excitement as they learned methods of paleontology and archaeology, the history of the dig site, and how to accurately record layers and depth of artifacts and fossils.   They also learned digging methods, dry and wet screening methods, and photographic recording methods.  We want to thank our wonderful volunteers, participants, and sponsors.  We will be working on future camps in 2019, including camps for adults and teachers.  Check out our Facebook and website for updates on our educational program or to view photos of the camp.

    2nd WMF Mural Project at the Wenas Mammoth Foundation’s dig site was completed by the La Salle High School Art students.  They spent the past school year researching and practicing how they were going to do the Winter Scene of the Wenas Valley 17,000 years ago.  They had 2 days in May to paint the mural.  The students did a wonderful job!  It was a challenge to take artwork that was done on a flat surface, and then actually paint it on the corrugated side of a cargo storage container.  Last year the students completed a Summer Scene on the other side of the cargo storage container.  You can see additional photos on our website at www.WenasMammoth.com, or on Facebook.
