National Fossil Day is always celebrated on the Wednesday of Earth Sciences Week! This very special day is a day to learn about and preserve fossils found in nature.


HISTORY: The U.S. National Park Service created the first National Fossil Day in 2010. There are more than 260 National Park Service areas that preserve fossils, including the Cape Cod National Seashore (MA), Springfield Armory National Historic Site (MA), Acadia National Park (ME), and the Marsh Billings Rockefeller National Historical Park (VT). SO COOL!!!




Mad Hatter Day is a great day to be silly and celebrate silliness.

The Mad Hatter is a fictional cartoon character depicted in Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland! Did you ever notice that The Mad Hatter wears a top hat and that on the front of the hat is a slip of paper with “10/6” written on it?! The paper is believed to be an order to make the hat, and that it costs ten shillings sixpence (so cool)!

TRUE FACT: In the 8th Century, mercury was used in hat making in a process called “carroting”. Mercury poisoning drove some hatters crazy (mad). WHOA!!!
