The Carter County Museum is an active member of the Montana Dinosaur Trail and an anchor institution in the community of Ekalaka, Montana.
In addition to our permanent and rotating exhibitions, we offer educational programming in the form of our annual Dino Shindig Event , school visits and lectures, as well as presentations at our Geological Society Meetings. Additionally, we operate a summer Junior Scientist program, which uses NISE Earth & Space kit material to introduce students to science and history, and Camp Clades & Spades fossil cam with Montana Learning Center. Throughout the summer we co-host Dark Sky Events at Medicine Rocks State Park and star parties at other sites across the county.
Our curricula were created through collaboration with our local Teacher Advisory Council, who also piloted them in their math, science, and elementary classrooms. All lessons confirm to state and national standards and have suggestions for integration into your classroom schedule. Click the covers below for more information and to download.
