The KU Natural History Museum has a variety of resources available for K-12 educators to explore science topics with your classes in the museum and in the classroom. Many items were created by museum educators and KU scientists as part of grant-funded projects, which reach more than 250,000 online users including K-12 students and teachers.
For a more in-depth exploration with your students, use these differentiated or NGSS-connected exhibit activities which are suitable for upper elementary/middle school and up.
Museum discovery guides provide fun and educational ways for classes or groups to further explore the museum and learn together.
Book a school program at the museum for your class! We offer a variety of science education programs for K-12 students throughout the Fall and Spring. Scholarships are available.
