Ancient Plants and Pollen
Working with the Education Department at the Royal Tyrrell Museum, we developed an education program that would take place in the Cretaceous Garden. The learning objective is for the students (from grades 4–6) to learn more about plants and what kind of plants were present during the Cretaceous period when dinosaurs lived.
The program was branded with the idea of how old and ancient some of these plants actually are. All the plants chosen within the program have fossilized spores or pollen as evidence that they lived within the Cretaceous period. The brand was then carried through all the materials where the kids have to fill out worksheets and they being to learn more about what makes up a plant and different properties between those that have pollen or spores.
