The Cornell Club of Rochester is having their annual Picnic at Allendale Columbia on Thursday, June 20th.  We are excited to present the 6th Grade Mastodon Project and our findings to the group, and we will answer as many questions as we can!  We will post more info after the event! 


Today in class I poured off some of the water from our flotation analysis of the last of the bag. I found many species of snails with shells from 1-3 mm in length.  The next step is to research the names of these snails.

Before the matrix arrives, we will be spending some time doing some research on this project. Topics include:

1. A trip back to the Pleistocene
2. The Ithaca Museum of the Earth
3. The Hyde Park Mastodon
4. The day in the life (and death) of an average Mastodon
