Virtual Field Trip for Homeschool Families: Adaptations

January 25, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 10:45 am


Take your homeschooled students on a fascinating journey through time as we explore how plants have adapted to different environments throughout the years! Investigate convergent evolution, discover leaf, stem and roots adaptations, and discuss the dynamic differences between plants! This virtual field trip is appropriate for families with students in 5th-12th grade.

Virtual field trips include an orientation based on the chosen science topic, a guided, interactive, theme-focused tour throughout the collection with a Conservatory educator, the opportunity for questions and answers throughout, access to printable copies of select resources, and the opportunity to deepen student learning across subject areas in one of Chicago’s most beautiful institutions.

Field trips are 45 minutes long and are led by a live educator at the Conservatory. Pre-registration is required and space is limited. Tickets are $5 and only one ticket per household/screen is needed.

This project was made in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services. Additional funding provided by PNC, the Seabury Foundation, and the Dr. Scholl Foundation.
