Morris Museum’s Emily Embler taught children about dinosaurs at the Brick branch Thursday.

TOMS RIVER – The Morris Museum invited children, ages 5 to 8, to interact with dinosaur fossils at the Brick branch of the Ocean County library on Thursday July 31.

Emily Embler, the Outreach Coordinator from the Morris Museum, taught the audience about dinosaur characteristics through the story, “Little Grunt and the Big Egg.” The children illustrated their understanding of dinosaur characteristics found in the story before they could observe the fossils.

Children learned from the story that dinosaurs laid eggs, are extinct, lived 65 million years ago, and that herbivores and carnivores differ.

The children examined fossils and models to deduce the physical characteristics of different dinosaur species.

The “Little Grunt and the Big Egg,” written by Tomie de Paola, is available in the library’s branches.

This program aligned with the NJ Core Content Curriculum Standards for science.
