Something for every student
Bring the Field Museum’s learning resources to your school or home to support learners engaging with science, nature, and world cultures. The lesson plans and activities draw from our collections, exhibitions, and research. Discover how ecosystems change over time. Watch as an archaeologist explores history through objects. Learn how to investigate specimens like a scientist.
Every resource is designed to spark the curiosity of learners of all ages and needs. For teachers and educators, we offer lesson plans aligned with the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and the C3 Framework. We also designed family-friendly lessons for parents teaching kids at home. Stand-alone activities are a fun way for families to think like scientists. Many resources are also available in Spanish. Our learning resources for grades pre-K to 12 support teaching and learning in classrooms and at home.
Mission to the Mesozoic
Team up with a scientist to explore Earth millions of years ago. Complete each quest in this online game by identifying different animals and plants and snapping their photos.
Mission to the Mesozoic and the Griffin Dinosaur Toolkit are part of the Griffin Dinosaur Experience, made possible by generous support from the Kenneth C. Griffin Charitable Fund. School learning experiences are supported by ITW.
