Today we packaged up the Mastodon Matrix material and shipped it back to P.R.I. We are sad to see it go, as we all learned quite a bit about this Mastodon and his surroundings when he was alive.

Special Thanks go out to a few people who made this project possible:

Dr. Buckler from the P.R.I. –  We really liked that you were so involved.  A huge thank you for answering our questions and blogging us!

Mr. Tepedino and Mrs. Oliveri – for taking pictures, helping us blog, and being there for help.

Mr. Theuer – for helping us with your expertise, your experience, and your advice on how to even do all this!!

For any class that’s going to be doing this mastodon project I would love to give some advice

*Try not to be to hyper because if you are you might tend to start losing stuff 

*Dont think that the mastodon project is the easy way out because its not its hard work but fun

*If u find something that you think is interesting take it look closer at it you might of found something really cool

* Or if you  find something you think might be bone ask someone don’t be shy!

Tips if you are going to do the matrix

  • When you are looking through the matrix look carefully otherwise he might miss something AMAZING
  • When weighing the matrix first way the bag and zero it out so you get the correct weight of the matrix
  • Be delicate when picking up shells so you don’t crack them
  • Take lots of pictures
  • Don’t take too much dirt at once
