Activity-Based Programs

Weathering, Erosion and Deposition

During this program, your students will be challenged to develop an understanding of the Earth processes of weathering, erosion and deposition. Your students will develop a working definition for these processes as they use earth materials to investigate each process. 

States of Matter
(K - 4th Grade)

In this program your students learn how and why things change from solid to liquid to gas and the properties of these states of matter. Students will develop a better sense of the physical world around them through this exploration of matter. 

Chemistry in a Bag
(6th - 12th Grade)

In this program your students will learn about both physical and chemical changes and get to observe chemical reactions up close. They will get a chance to formulate a simple experiment with the materials provided, and form and test their own hypothesis. 

Bird Beak Adaptations
(4th - 8th Grade)

Learn about animal adaptations in a hands-on way by looking at different birds, their food sources and their beaks. Your students will also get to examine some items from the Museum’s collection as they learn about the different ways birds have adapted to their environment.
