Educator-Led ProgramsAncient Plants and Pollen

Explore the world of plants by stepping in to our living exhibit – the Cretaceous Garden! Here, students will discover what plants looked like in Alberta during the Age of Dinosaurs. In a practical curriculum-based exercise, working in teams, students will locate a specific plant, analyze, describe, and draw it; gathering information to present to their classmates. This program will encourage students to use their observation, investigative, artistic, and public speaking skills.
