SYCAMORE – The Midwest Museum of Natural History has a new tool for teachers of all kinds: Educator Resource Boxes.
Each box focuses on a different area of natural history, such as Native American culture, life cycles or dinosaurs. They are filled with a range of artifacts, activities and replicas, all carefully selected to facilitate learning and meet state standards. Boxes can be checked out by DeKalb County educators free of charge to enjoy with their students in their own classrooms.
Teachers, home-school parents, scout leaders, teachers’ aides, school administrators and area educators are invited to an open house at the museum from 4:30 to 6 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 28 to explore the museum and learn about the educational opportunities it offers. The open house is free, but RSVP by calling 815-895-9777 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
