Homeschool Adventure Days
SKELETONS: Museum of Osteology is excited to announce the first fall Homeschool Adventure Day on October 4, 2017! We invite everyone attending the events to enjoy all-day museum admission before and after your scheduled program, special scavenger hunts, and a 60-minute hands-on education program.
Grades K-5 - Tale of the Tooth
10:00am-11:00am - Tale of the Tooth begins with the students listening to a story about different types of animals and how they use their teeth. Students will then engage in a hands-on activity to discover tooth adaptations that allow animals to survive in a variety of ecosystems. Through the hands-on engagement of skull specimens, your students will study the teeth and eye placement of herbivores, carnivores, and omnivores.
Grades 6-12 - Keys to Identification
11:30am-12:30pm - Students will work in teams to locate and measure various skull features while following dichotomous keys. Using thier dichotomous keys, students will identify various types of animals based off of measurement conversions and osteological observations. Emphasis will be placed on the student's ability to verbally communicate the identification process and everyone will share their findings at the conclusion of the class.
At this Homeschool Adventure Day, we will be debuting a NEW scavenger hunt! Students will need to navigate their way through exhibits to find skeletons and the answers to AMAZING animal facts.
*Children under 3 do not require a ticket
Please note: There are two program starting times, as there are different programs for each age group.
