Classroom Kits

Use the Museum’s Education Collection in your classroom! Outreach kits are free and designed to fit any classroom’s need. Take learning to a new level and let your students hold items like quartz crystals, model skulls, whale baleen, and furs. Below are ready-made classroom kits, but we can create kits for almost any subject.

  • Predator and Prey Adaptions: Skulls and animal furs help students identify key adaptations that herbivores, carnivores, and omnivores have to help them survive.
  • The Ohlone and Natural Resources: How did the Ohlone live? Share arrowheads, a tule canoe, deer pelts, and other natural resources the Ohlone people used during their everyday life with your students.
  • Museum Collection Items: If you would like to check out a few items to aid in your classroom lesson, you can set up an appointment to see which objects are available, and would work best in your class.
