Paleontology Teaching Kits

 Kit 1  Kit 2VA

The Virginia Museum of Natural History Paleontology Department and Patrick Henry Community College Geology Department have jointly developed a series of paleontology teaching kits. These kits are based on detailed cast replicas of fossils in museum collections, and are designed to teach specific science concepts aligned with the 2010 Virginia Standards of Learning for Science and Next Generation Science Standards.

The Virginia Museum of Natural History also collaborated with the Dragon Research Collaborative to develop a multidisciplinary Carboniferous plant kit to be used across institutions. This kit comes with a continuously developing pedagogy that covers K-12 and college education. The lesson plans can be found at www.dragonrc.org
