Our partners at Streamable Learning have made MOR programs available for free to schools and districts in Montana. Montana schools and Montana homeschool families are invited to register using the links found in the below drop-down accordion list.
Please note that when you click to register for a program, it will take you to the Streamable Learning website, where they will display each program's start time in Eastern Time. We list the time for each program in the equivalent Mountain Time.
Teachers, please follow these directions. Use the links below to sign up your entire class for a program. You will receive a confirmation email. Please check your spam or junk mail for this message. If you would like your students to join individually, once you have received the confirmation email, share the “click to join” link with your students. Your students will click the link and join the live stream under your (the teacher’s) name. Their privacy will be protected. All chats are private between the presenters and the participants.
Livestream programs utilize Zoom livestreaming rooms. These are not videoconferencing rooms; attendees are not visible, cannot be heard, and cannot share anything. To access, you will be required to download Zoom, which can be done at zoom.us/download. Schools outside of Montana or schools interested in a subscription to access additional programs may visit streamablelearning.com or email email@example.com for subscription information.
Imagine pulling a stone tool out of the dirt. An object no one has seen for almost 13,000 years! Archaeologists seek to uncover the ancient human past through the objects people leave behind. Archaeology can open your mind to new questions and spark creativity and critical thinking.
Learn how archaeologists study the past through objects, start asking important questions, and reconstruct human lives. “Stones, Bows, and Bones; Elementary Archaeology” invites students from grades three through five to start learning about the world of archaeology.
Rocks, rock! While rocks aren’t living things (or even squishy, for that matter!), they still go through cycles – changing and morphing from one type to another over time. Learn about the three basic rock types with paleontologist Ashley Hall, and how sedimentary, igneous, and metamorphic rocks form and change through Earth’s dynamic forces.
North America has a rich and fascinating archaeological record of mammoths, sloths, stone tools, and cities. Explore recent archaeological discoveries and learn how people lived in ancient North America. “Digging Deep; Archaeology of North America” uncovers how archaeologists reconstruct the past, how they know what they know, and how new discoveries change science and our understanding of the world. Museum of the Rockies invites students from grades six through twelve to dig deep into the ancient human past of North America.

How do scientists categorize dinosaurs? Long-necked sauropods, frilled ceratopsians, and duck-billed hadrosaurs are only three of the five groups of dinosaurs that we will explore in this program. Join museum educator Dillon Warn to learn more about the lives of these incredible dinosaurs.

What can we learn about dinosaurs by looking inside of their bones? Join Museum of the Rockies Paleohistology Lab Manager Ellen-Therese Lamm to explore her unique role in science and discover how researchers use microscopic information to piece together details about extinct animals.
The Hell Creek Formation in Montana and surrounding areas contain the fossils of some of the last non-avian dinosaurs to walk the Earth. Tyrannosaurus rex, Triceratops,
Pachycephalosaurus, and more all roamed the area about 66 million years ago. Join MOR Curator of Paleontology Dr. John Scannella to travel back to the end of the Cretaceous Period and meet the dinosaurs of the Hell Creek Formation!
From discovery to seeing enormous dinosaurs in the museum, a fossil’s journey is fascinating. MOR Paleontology Lab and Field Manager Lee Hall will tell the story of the process of paleontology - from first discovering a fossil in the field to exhibiting entire dinosaurs in a museum in a fun and engaging way. From very young students to high school, this program will help illustrate the importance of paleontology and its role within the sciences and as an exciting career for students interested in studying the history of life on Earth.
