What is a fossil? What can it tell us about life in the Lowcountry before Charleston? Study fossils from the Museum’s collection to learn the answers to these questions and more.  Children will gain an understanding of creatures that used to roam prehistoric Charleston, such as the world’s largest known flying bird and the giant ground sloth. Homeschool History Day programs feature a field trip experience, a chance to go through the Museum, and an activity.
