Are you up to the challenge? Paleontologists often need to make quick identifications out in the field. Join Educator Cody and take our challenge to see if you can correctly identify what's a fossil and what's not!

For us Wisconsinites, snow is a part of life for a few months out of the year. For native people living along the Arctic Circle, snow is almost a way of life -- pretty much all the time. In this activity, we explore the lives of indigenous people of the Arctic region through their language, and the many different words they use for types of snow. Create your own vocabulary for something important in your life, and learn why language is such a fascinating tool for understanding other cultures.
