Educational Resources

The Fundy Geological Museum connects your classroom curriculum with live, interactive learning and fun! Let your students experience our unforgettable Day Programs and a museum sleepover:

Fabulous Fossils

Find out about local dinosaur discoveries and the unique, rich geological history of the area. This program includes a beach tour with a focus on the geology of cliffs. Look at actual marks left by the shifting earth and discover ripple and mud cracks. See the ocean bottom standing upright! Students may discover marine fossils or footprints, too. Your students will also visit our fossil lab, meet the Lab Manager, hear a 10- to 15-minute presentation on the science of fossils, and make a related craft.

Marvelous Minerals

Get inside this treasure chest of learning with a day program that includes a guided mineral tour of the museum; a beach tour and mineral search on PartridgeIsland, and a visit to our mineral-based labs where students learn to identify and classify minerals. Depending on the age of the students, the hands-on mineral stations allow students to identify minerals by magnetism, colour, streak, density, texture, hardness and crystal shape. Students will create a necklace using Bay of Fundy agate!

A Night at The Museum!

Join us for a night with the dinosaurs! Set up your bedroll in the museum gallery, roast marshmallows around the campfire or go for a hike with your guide. Then, settle in for a night at the Museum! After breakfast, look for minerals at a local beach, learn about rocks and minerals of the Bay of Fundy and see Canada’s oldest dinosaur bones! At noon, enjoy a lunch of T-Rex toes.
