While exploring a unit on reptiles the children got up close and personal with a pet boa constrictor and also traveled back in time to the Triassic period. The Penguins were surprised to learn that some dinosaurs came from a group of reptiles called Archosauromorphs and lizards came from a distantly related reptile group called Lepidosauromorphs. Inspired by these fun facts, the children then became paleontologists in search for fossils!
