Curricula - Event-Based Teacher Collaborative

This page contains event-based curriculum mini-units designed by teachers and museum educators through the Yale Peabody Museum's Event-Based Teacher Collaborative, July 2010 through November 2012. Many of the mini-units have accompanying kits of specimens and materials that teachers can borrow from the Museum - please contact if interested, or with other questions. The Event-Based Teachers Collaborative was made possible by a generous grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
