This Fall, make plans to visit our new changing exhibition for IEFA Curriculum Support:
Tours are available October 11, 2017 - January 12, 2018.
Your classroom is invited to explore the unique relationship between Western science and native ecological knowledge. From everyday items like duck decoys to surfboards, popcorn to chocolate, students will learn how native knowledge impacts our daily lives, and recognize the great contributions that indigenous peoples have provided over centuries.
Roots of Wisdom integrates Montana Content Standards and Curriculum across grade levels, contents areas, and Indian Education for All Standards.
Check out these Educational Resources that support this exhibition.
This new guide from Museum of the Rockies contains a variety of worksheet-based activities that will invite your students to discover the world of dinosaurs - how they grew, ate, lived, and died. Funded in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services, this Educator's Guide provides an ideal introduction to MOR's landmark collection of fossils in a flexible format to meet the needs of Montana teachers. Activities are grouped by themes and designed to be used in a variety of settings, including both classrooms and the Museum. Teachers are invited to use this guide to plan standards-based, pre- and post-visit lessons and borrow hands-on materials from MOR.
Use just one activity, or several! Download the entire guide by clicking on the picture below, or individual lessons in the resource links on this page.
School groups from across the state of Montana are admitted free of charge to Museum of the Rockies (with an advanced reservation of 3 weeks or more) thanks to generous donations from individuals and corporations.
More information about school visits to MOR may be found in our school visit catalog, located HERE.
