Loanable Materials

The nine different theme-based discovery boxes are a fun, interactive way to involve your students in certain science-based lessons. Each box includes hands-on materials such as animal furs, skulls, books, CD’s and video tapes for teachers to use at their own discretion. Each box comes with detailed lesson plans, activities, and background information on each topic. All of the boxes meet the Michigan Curriculum Framework Standards, which are listed on each lesson plan. The boxes can be borrowed by the teacher for up to two weeks, or a Conservancy Naturalist can be scheduled to present a box to your classroom. Suggestions are always welcome! Boxes are loaned AT NO CHARGE. DISCOVERY BOX DESCRIPTIONS

Conservancy staff have made some of our most requested programs available for teachers to conduct on their own, by providing all materials needed for these programs. Visit here for descriptions of our PROGRAMS TO GO!

Call one of our educators at 231.347.0991 to reserve a Discovery Box or Program-to-Go. These resources are available for teachers throughout the Little Traverse Conservancy service area of Mackinac, Chippewa, Emmet, Charlevoix and Cheboygan counties.
