Long Distance Learning
In this activity a ranger will remotely (using an I-Pad) orient students (also using I-Pads or other bridged media forms) with the larger setting of Agate Fossil Beds National Monument, and spend time with them describing a large diorama exhibit in the Visitor Center. This sensational, life-sized exhibit focuses on the sometimes bizarre animals that roamed these prairies 20 million years ago and are known today through their fossils discovered nearby.
