  Acorn Naturalists Wildlife Discovery Kits
Acorn Naturalists Wildlife Discovery Kits® feature hands-on resources that present close-up views of North American animals. Designed for ages 7-11, each module contains a realistic puppet, natural history book, animal model, replicas of tracks, teeth, and claws, blackline masters, and activity guide. Engaging, thought-provoking investigations focus on each animal’s adaptations and behaviors—key components for life science identified in the National Research Council’s new Framework for K-12 Science Education. Turn your learning center or discovery corner into a natural history lab complete with working skull models, sleuthing activities, stamping stations, reading material, and art projects.
 
  Acorn Naturalists Outdoor Exploration Packs
Acorn Naturalists Get Outdoors!® Field Packs are designed for children ages 7-11. Each contains a selection of books and equipment related to the topic. Packs are designed as starter kits that initiate interest in the field while teaching basic observation and identification skills. These unique, effective educational resources are available exclusively from Acorn Naturalists.
 
  Acorn Naturalists Create-A-Scene® Dioramas
These kits feature a generous selection of natural materials for a realistic appearance. Each biome kit includes six or more hand-painted animal replicas, and offers a unique mix of habitat-appropriate rocks, leaves, logs and substrate, along with an original line-drawing of a background (to be colored in). Additionally, the kit contains three extra blank cards for creating more scenes along with an “animal clue” item (such as a squirrel-chewed pine cone in the evergreen forest diorama) to add interest and intrigue. Creatively supplement these hands-on displays with locally collected resources. Each kit is packaged in a 11" long x 9" wide x 6" deep custom-designed stained wooden box with a sliding lid. Turn the box on its side to create the “theater” for the diorama. Includes instructions and suggestions for supplemental activities. Twelve different habitats from different biomes are offered. Each kit contains different blends of the resources listed above along with the specific animals listed below. For ages 7 and up. $69.90 each. MIX OR MATCH 10, $62.91 each.
