The Grade 4’s had an amazing time at the Tyrrell Museum in Drumheller last week. We participated in two fabulous programs, and also had some time to explore this world-class facility. Each student had a chance to make their own cast fossil, and we also learned about the group of dinosaurs that are mistakenly called “raptors” thanks to the Jurassic Park movies. It was a day to remember!
The students had a purpose on their fun learning day as well – they had to come up with a burning question that they wanted to find the answer to while at the museum. Most students were able to use their “detective” skills to search for their information in the gallery exhibits, and some asked an expert for help. Great work, Grade 4!
