NATIONAL FOSSIL DAY Paper Bag Paleontology Take Home Activity Pickup

In celebration of National Fossil Day on October 14, order a take-home activity, Paper Bag Paleontology! Each activity bag includes a mystery animal’s “fossils” (made of paper) from the Jurassic period. Try to put it together and post a picture tagging the museum’s Facebook page @mormsu.

Discover what it was like in the early days of paleontology when scientists were not quite sure what they found or how the bones fit together.

  • This activity is best for children in grades K-5 but is adaptable for all ages.
  • Limited take home activity bags available, pre-registration is required. One activity bag per child.
  • Activity bags will be available for pick-up from Saturday, October 10 to Wednesday, October 14 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the front desk.
