The north halls of Malta Elementary School became flooded with parents and spectators from around the county that wanted to see the 12th Annual Second Grade Dinosaur Museum last Friday, April 6, at 2 p.m. Though Malta Elementary School second grade teachers Mrs. Terri Blunt and Mrs. Kendra Veit have been running the event together for years, Mr. Zach Handley, a student teacher with Mrs. Blunt experienced the event for the first time. "We have the big dinosaur museum happening with the second graders showing off their dinosaurs that they have been researching for a couple of weeks," Mr. Handley said. Mr. Handley shared his honest opinion about the dozens of exhibits displayed between the two rooms. There were eighteen in Mrs. Blunt's class and another 18 in Mrs. Veit's class. "They are looking really nice," Mr. Handley said. "You have some dinosaur eggs in there, along with some toy dinosaurs and big dinosaur posters as well." He was asked what his favorite dinosaur was, but possibly fearing the backlash from his students, he exercised his Constitutional Right. "I plead the fifth on that one," Mr. Handley said. Mrs. Blunt offered some history on the yearly event, answering the most important question; why? "We started this project because in our reading series there are a couple of stories with dinosaurs, so it's expanded off of that because kids love dinosaurs," Mrs. Blunt said. "We do it all at school." The event went from 2 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. that day, but Malta Elementary School students and staff had been looking at the exhibit earlier in the day.
