Wyoming became the 44th state today in 1890. Yellowstone became the first National Park in 1872 and Devils Tower became the first National Monument in 1906. You might remember Devils Tower in the movie "Close encounters of the third kind", one of Teddy favorite movies. Most states have state symbols, a bird , flower and song, so does Wyoming, and they also have a state dinosaur, the Triceratops! Seven states have dinosaurs as state symbols, can you name them? Hint- the New Jersey dinosaur is the Hadrosaur.
