Check out an educator loan box and bring a fresh, interactive science lesson to the classroom. Each loan box comes complete with hands-on group learning activities, educational items and reference materials. Illinois Science Standards are supported, making it easy to incorporate them into an educator’s curriculum. Four different themes are available: birds, mammals, insects and ecosystems. One more theme, plants/trees, will become available in 2019. Learn more »
With a two-week loan period, teachers and students have ample time to explore and repeat activities in each loan box. Activities are geared toward K–5 classrooms, but some items may be helpful to older classrooms. Loan boxes are available to classroom teachers and nonformal educators.
