Time: (1.5 hours) 10:30am – 12:00pm
A dinosaur has been found murdered, the victim of a mysterious prehistoric crime! It’s up to the Cretaceous Scene Investigation crew to analyze the evidence, come up with a theory, and figure out what happened to this poor unfortunate fossil.
Kindergarten to Grade 3 (or equivalent)Date: March 22, 2019
Time: (1 hour) 10:30am – 11:30am
This program starts with an interactive reading of a book by Robert Heidbreder called, “Drumheller Dinosaur Dance”. The students participate during the dinosaur storybook reading by doing a mini-choreographed dino dance and reading out loud the repetitive main verse of the story. After the reading the students examine replicas and real 73 million year old fossils. To conclude, they put on their palaeontologist hats and work together in teams to construct giant dinosaur puzzles constructed out of foam.
Grades 4 – 12 (or equivalent)Date: March 22, 2019
Time: (1 hour) 1:00pm – 2:00pm
Students make their own replica fossil to keep as a souvenir! During this interactive program students learn what are molds, what are casts and what are fossils? While they wait for their replicas to dry, students will learn what happens to a fossil from its discovery to its star appearance in the museum exhibit.
