EARTH SCIENCE STUDENTS TRAVEL THROUGH TIME AND SPACE


Students in Mr. Cosgrove and Mr. Napolitano’s Earth science honors classes enjoyed an exciting day at the Museum of Natural History in New York City, on April 21.

On the popular dinosaur floor, students explored the Saurischian and the Ornithiscian and participated in a scavenger hunt. Currently, the big attraction at the museum is the special, temporary exhibit of the Titanosaur, whose 122-foot-long cast brushes the gallery’s 19-foot-high ceilings. This giant herbivore weighed about 70 tons and lived 100-95 million years ago in the forests of today’s Patagonia desert in Argentina.

In the afternoon, students explored the Rose Center for Earth and Space which encompasses the spectacular Hayden Planetarium. With Hayden’s dome as their movie screen, students watched the IMAX feature, “Dark Universe.” 

This was a vivid and interactive learning experience the students will long remember.
