Museum has educator resources

Teachers, home-school parents, scout leaders, teachers’ aides, school administrators and area educators are invited to an open house at the Midwest Museum of Natural History in Sycamore from 4:30 to 6 p.m. Thursday.

Attendees can explore the museum, enjoy refreshments, meet animal ambassadors and learn about the educational opportunities the museum offers, including field trips, outreach programs and new Educator Resource Boxes.

Each Educator Resource 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. The Educator Resource Box project is made possible by a grant from the DeKalb County Community Foundation.

The open house is free, but RSVP by calling 815-895-9777 or email information@mmnh.org.
