Paleo Teaching Kits Update!

Kit 2VAKit 1

Before his departure for California, former curator Dr. Dooley started not only the molding and casting program but developed three fossil teaching kits. These kits provide a resource to teachers that is durable, reusable, and hands-on. These kits include cast replicas of museum specimens, identification cards, and a teacher’s guide and lab.

During the recent holiday season, I decided to update the teacher’s guides and labs. Together with my friend Amy, a third grade teacher from the city of Franklin, we gave a face lift to two of the three kits as well as updated and aligned the labs to the 2010 Virginia Standards of Learning for Science.

You can learn more about each of the kits and find the updated labs through the links below:
