Curriculum Unit Kits to Borrow [order form]
These kits contain materials, equipment and activities to do a unit on a particular subject.
- Track Kit - Contains 20 different latex tracks and animal sign to be used to teach about New Hampshire’s wildlife. Includes activities and overheads to be used with a class. This is a good supplement to the track activity from Project WILD.
- Fur Kit - The fur kit provides pelts of some common New Hampshire wildlife. Because many species of wildlife are elusive and difficult to see, this kit allows students to examine their pelts up close. The furs are identified with brief natural history information. This is a good complement to the Track Kit.
- Furbearer Fundamentals - Furbearers are those mammals that have traditionally been trapped for their fur. Kit contains pelts, scat, tracks and skulls of the fourteen furbearers found in the northeast. Suggested interdisciplinary unit plan, activities, field guides, keys and fact sheets are included to support the teaching of three sub-themes: natural history of the furbearers; history of furbearers, including their connection to the changing landscape and the development of the U.S.; and wildlife management techniques. For middle school students.
