Terrific Trip to the Natural History Museum

On Friday we will be visiting the Natural History Museum! This is a trip we are all really looking forward to.

Some of the main things we will be looking at are:

  • Dinosaurs
  • Mammals
  • Arachnids and insects
  • Fossils

Reminder, we will be spending most of our time in the BLUE zone, and some in the GREEN zone (if we’re lucky, we might get a quick visit to the RED zone).
