Second-graders at Tackan Elementary School took a trip back to the age of dinosaurs, thanks to a presentation by paleontologist Bob Lisaius, aka “Dinoman” on March 6.

During the morning assembly, the second-grade classes came together to learn about fossils, different types of dinosaurs, why they became extinct and Lisaius’ work in the field in an effort to spark students’ interest in science.

Following the general assembly, Lisaius visited each of the individual second-grade classes for an informative hands-on session featuring relics of the past. Students touched different artifacts – some dating back millions of years – including dinosaur horns, claws, teeth and fossilized rocks.
