Gr 4–8: Slice of Life: Adaptations


Grade 4-8

This program consists of two portions:

  1.  Stand-alone video lesson focusing on biodiversity and ecozones from Saskatchewan both past and present.  Join an RSM interpreter to tour the life science gallery dioramas and explore the differences in climate, landforms and biodiversity present in the ecozones of Saskatchewan present.   Explore portions of the Earth Sciences gallery to compare the biodiversity, landforms and climate of Saskatchewan in the Late Cretaceous to the present and learn how our province has changed over time. (Note:  This portion can be done without the interactive program).
  2. Interactive Program – online Microsoft Teams Meeting (approximately 45 minutes) with an RSM Interpreter.  Students will have the opportunity to investigate two types of research done by actual biologists and palaeontologists at the Royal Saskatchewan Museum. Students will explore how scientists learn about biodiversity, climate and more through their participation in the program. Teacher computer screens will need to be projected for the class to see and hear.  Teachers will assist in coordinating communication between the RSM interpreter and the class during this program.  A worksheet will be available to be used during this live experience. (Note: This portion is intended to be done after the video portion.  They do not have to be done on the same day).  Bookings available starting November 2020.  Contact education@royalsaskmuseum.ca for more information.
