K - 12 PROGRAM TESTIMONIALS
…the kids 100% engaged with the hands on portion. The presentation touched on many different points from the Alberta curriculum… the information that was presented with the fossil replica’s tied into Alberta background perfectly. The videos showed the landscape of Alberta, jobs, resources, animals and more.…
C’était la première fois que je voyais la présentation et cela a dépassé mes attentes. Les élèves se sont bien amusés et ont beaucoup appris.
I was very pleased with the way information was embedded in all aspects of the program including: the slideshow, puppet show, fossil show-and-tell, and rock and mineral lab.
I really enjoyed the presentation Dino Tracker for Grade 10. The greatest strength of the program was the mathematics at the end and doing the calculations and figuring out the dinosaur actual hip height and speed.
Geology Rocks exceeded my expectations in many ways… on every learning style: visual, spatial, auditory, verbal, kinesthetic, logic, social and solitary! All students were engaged!
