|Who uses the specimens?
||Caring for Collections
Let's see, there's the lesson about classifying... What's the difference between mammals, birds and reptiles?
And that lesson about form and function... Can you tell what mammals eat by the shape of their teeth?
And the one about biodiversity and genetic variation.... Or was that geographic variation? Or both?
Anyway, you get the idea.
Specimens and objects in the Museum's Nature to You Loan Program are particularly helpful for the kindergarten through high school ages. The Research Collections are used by college professors to help their students with the more advanced concepts.
