The kit arrives in a tote with the specimens organized into sets, which are protected by foam. The specimens are easy to reorganize at time of return. A teacher’s guide giving background information and a description of the individual activities is also provided. Each set has laminated activity sheets to guide the students through the exploration of the specimens. The activities can be conducted without the students having to handle the specimens. Materials will also be emailed in advance. Each set provides suggested avenues for further inquiry for your students via online research.
