You might wonder what writing a letter has to do with fossils and dinosaurs.

You can visit just about any history museum and you’ll be struck by the impact a letter can have. Most things people owned throughout history have decayed into dust, but fragile pieces of old letters have been protected for generations because their words are worth reading again and again. Letters are a part of somebody’s history, like fossils.

For right now, writing a letter to somebody you care about will make you happy and be a wonderful surprise for the lucky person finding it in the mailbox.

How about sharing everything you learned about fossils and dinosaurs with a friend ?
