Description

What can fossils and geological evidence tell us about Earth during the Cretaceous period? This program utilizes paleontology conducted by the Perot Museum in Alaska and local fossils of dinosaurs and other life collected around Dallas-Fort Worth to reveal the ancient world. Through an experiment, students will investigate the possible cause of the terminal Cretaceous extinction. Self-Guided Permanent Exhibit Halls are included with education program bookings. For a more detailed description of exhibit hallways please read “Exhibits Only” listing or check out our website http://www.perotmuseum.org/

Students Will

  • Analyse and evaluate a variety of fossils
  • Investigate the possible cause of the Cretaceous extinction
