Grades : Grade 05
Activity Type : Combined program (Tour & Lab)
Duration : 90 minutes

The reign of the dinosaurs on our planet may have ended 65 million years ago, but we still have more in common with these ancient reptiles than you might think! Half the lesson will be spent in a learning lab exploring original objects at thematic tables; the other half will be spent in the ROM’s Dinosaur gallery. Discover what characteristics we share with the reptiles who once ruled the earth through the ROM’s incredible collections, close observation, questioning, and discussion.

There are two options available for this guided visit. Please indicate in the booking notes which option you prefer. If no preference is indicated, your group will be defaulted to the paper worksheet option. If choosing the Digital worksheets, please also indicate in the booking notes which e-mail address you use for Google Drive so we can share your class folder with you.

  1. Paper worksheets: This option employs traditional paper worksheets for students to record the results of their observations and experiments in the lab.
  2. Digital worksheets (pilot program): This option employs iPads for students to record the results of their observations and experiments in the lab, which develops students’ STEAM skills in digital collaboration. Students’ work is shared on Google Drive for access and collaboration back in the classroom. Practice these skills with your class using Google Slides.

If you would like this program to be customized to your needs, please provide a detailed description in the "Additional Information" field during the checkout process.  A ROM staff member will contact you to discuss your request.
