Virtual Field Trip for Homeschool Families: Pollination
March 8, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 10:45 am
Without pollination, life on Earth would look very different. But, what is pollination and why is it important? Through this tour of the Conservatory, explore many interesting examples of how plants and their pollinators co-evolved to perfect the process of pollination that we depend on for our own survival. This virtual field trip is appropriate for families with students in preschool-4th 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. Registration closes at 10:00am when the program begins. Automated live captioning is available.
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.
