you teaching about mammals? Borrow an Illinois Wild Mammals Trunk
to supplement your lessons. Developed by the IDNR Division of
Education, these supplemental kits are available for loan to educators
at lending locations statewide. Each trunk, which is a large plastic
container, is filled with field guides, CD-ROMs, a DVD, fur samples,
skulls, track and scat replicas, lessons, activity sheets, posters
and other items. Trunk contents are correlated to the Illinois Learning Standards, and the correlation to the Next Generation Science Standards will soon be available. Targeted Grades: PreK - 8
Lending locations are listed below. Call or email to make your reservation. A two-week loan period is suggested. There is no charge to borrow the trunk, although a refundable deposit may be requested.
