New for 2020-2021 we are offering programs for homeschool classes and small bubbles who would like to enhance their school curriculum. We can help with two of the Grade 5 Science Big Ideas - Earth Materials and Solutions.
Through exploring the exhibits, activities and site features, you can discover our relationship with Earth Materials. This can help teach the following Big Idea in the Grade 5 science curriculum of BC.
Earth materials change as they move through the rock cycle and can be used as natural resources.
Your visit to the museum will help answer questions such as; What are Earth Materials? How do we interact with Earth Materials? and How can we change our relationship with Earth Materials to be better stewards of the environment?
Included in your admission to the museum are the following - Guided tour of the underground (Copper quest) and BOOM!, self-exploration of the site and exhibits, a homeschool visit support package, gold panning and a choice of one 30 minute session from the following:
Have you ever seen a dinosaur footprint fossil? How do such fossils form and what can they tell us? Join us for Earthly Explorers' as we uncover the story of our dinosaur footprint and how the stories of rocks reveal the geological timeline of our planet. This session also includes free time to uncover the secrets of a variety of rocks and minerals selected to help understand earth materials and the rock cycle. This program, and the rocks and minerals used, are hosted in our Geolab which is not a publicly accessible space.WHAT is a SOLUTION?
