Event Details

Mammoths and Mastodons Field Trip Planning Workshop

Saturday, October 20 | 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. | Grades 3 - 8

Come learn about our newest traveling exhibition Mammoths and Mastodons: Titans of the Ice Age.  Travel back to a time when humans shared the stage with woolly giants! Examine full-scale replicas of massive Ice Age mammals, including Lyuba, a nearly perfectly preserved baby mammoth, and experience the world of these larger-than-life creatures.


Participants will visit this temporary exhibit to explore evolution, consider interactions between these organisms and early humans, and find out how scientists excavate, analyze and learn about these ancient animals.  A discussion on planning effective field trips will take a look at how to connect Mammoths and Mastodons and other exhibit spaces to curriculum content.  We will examine several exhibit related resources for classroom lessons. Our staff will also provide an overview of the Educator Resource Center services and programs, emphasizing support for teachers as learners.
