10:10 a.m. Live Stream Event: Geologic Time Travel (Grades 6 - 12)

Museum of the Rockies (MOR) wants all Montana schoolchildren to be able to engage with museum paleontologists, so we’re bringing the Museum to you! In partnership with Streamable Learning, MOR will connect with classrooms around the state and the country, to learn about paleontology. Programs are always free for Montana schools with advanced registration! No special equipment is required to participate.

Grades: 6 – 12 | Length: 45 min. | Category: Science
Studying the Earth’s fossil record and rock strata helps us understand the Earth’s 4.6 billion-year-old history. Take a quick ride through time to uncover what the Earth’s ecosystems and life were like in what is now known as Montana. Study real fossils, explore ancient life and examine rock samples with geologists and paleontologists. Travel through 4.6 billion years in 46 minutes!
