Dynamic Dinosaurs!

Designed for grades: 2nd – 4th grade
Length: 30 – 45 minutes
NGSS-aligned

When you think of fossils, most people think of the “terrible lizards” of the Mesozoic, the dinosaurs! In this digital field trip, Alf Museum educators help students discover some amazing dinosaur fossils from the Alf Museum collection and discuss basic principles of paleontology: what are (and aren’t) fossils; what makes a dinosaur a dinosaur; how are dinosaurs classified; and what was the world of the dinosaurs like. In this two-way interactive experience, students are encouraged to ask questions and expand their perspectives about the world of dinosaurs.


Exhibit Exploration!

Length: 50 ­– 60 minutes

Join an Alf Museum educator for a trip through time as your classroom explores the VIRTUAL Alf Museum Hall of Life and Hall of Footprints! In this interactive experience, students will see some amazing fossil displays and discuss paleontological concepts like deep time, extinction, and evolution.
