Field Trip Friday- Tellus Science Museum

We are in our second full week of summer vacation. I love summer and not having to follow a strict schedule, but I don't want to waste our time away. So, I thought on Fridays, we could go a "field trip". Visit someplace we haven't been and maybe possibly learn something too.

We started with a trip to Tellus Science Museum in Cartersville, GA. The museum had exhibits about motion, fossils, minerals, gravity and sound.

                                                Lots of planes, trains and automobiles to understand motion.

The girls loved the area with minerals and gemstones. We were able to go panning for stones and the girls got to take home a little bag filled with the stones they found.
Digging for dinosaur bones.
We learned about different animals that have lived on the Earth and the fossils left behind.
This exhibit was Rachel's favorite part.
We walked through an exhibit filled with stones and minerals.
There was an entire wall filled with the periodic table and examples of the elements.
The museum was named after Tellurium.
The biggest turtle to live on the Earth.
It was bigger than my car!
We finished with a walk through the dinosaur area.
We also watched a show in the planetarium.
Fun day out with the girls.
