In the meantime, here are the classes we had last Fallscape. We usually have a theme for each session, last year's being dinosaurs.
Grades Pre-K, K & 1: The Age of Dino
Have you ever wondered what dinosaurs were? Have you ever been curious as to when they existed? Or maybe how long they lives? Have you ever asked yourself why they died out and went extinct? Join us in an exploration of the Triassic, Jurassic, and Cretaceous Periods! Make sure to dress to get messy as this will be a very hands-on approach to the Age of Reptiles.
Grades 2, 3, & 4: Dino Action
In this class we will learn about what makes a dinosaur a dinosaur, how fossils are formed, what dinosaur teeth look like, and what fossils can tell scientists about how dinosaurs behaved. We'll also take a trip to the Missouri Institute of Natural Science to learn about what types of animals lived here in Missouri long ago.
Grades 5, 6, & 7: Dino Day
Celebrate Dino Day at Drury Fallscape! We will have the fantastic opportunity of going to the Natural History Museum and getting to see Henry (who is Henry???), and learn more about these fascinating, prehistoric creatures. In addition, we will be enjoying all kinds of dino-driven activities: crafts, storytelling, research, and games. Can't wait to see you at Dino Day!
