Visiting the Museum

The Nature in the Classroom and Leaves of Change lessons are designed to inspire curiosity and fascination for the natural world. It is our hope that students using our kits will desire to continue learning, discovering and asking questions about the world around them. Visiting the museum is an ideal "next step" for encouraging this desire to learn. During a trip at the museum, students will have the opportunity to see some of our more exotic specimens, learn how a specimen is prepared, and gain a better understanding and appreciation for museums and museum collections.
