Seashell Science Education KitShell_Girl_crop

The Seashell Science Education Kit is designed for use in your classroom and contains shells representing nearly 30 species of marine animals from Monterey Bay. Curriculum suggestions for grades K-2 are included, focusing on adaptive features of seashore animals. Activities challenge students to sharpen their observation skills, while incorporating language and creative arts. Although curriculum suggestions target grades K-2, the shells and resources could be used for activities with any grade level.

In addition to the shell collection and curriculum, the kit also includes activity sheets, answer keys, two reference books, and a teacher preview pass to visit the Seymour Center.

To learn more or make a reservation for Seashell Science call the Seymour Center at (831) 459-3800. Cost: $10/week. Seashell Science is available by reservation only.

Additional Education Kits are available for check-out from the Santa Cruz Museum of Natural History. Topics include tide pools, fossils, insects, and geology. Visit www.santacruzmuseum.org for more information.
