Teaching kits bring Boston Children's Museum directly to students in Massachusetts public schools. Kits are interdisciplinary teaching units, packed with artifacts, hands-on activities, supplies, videos and photos. They include lesson plans in science, social studies, art, and math to foster cooperative, participatory learning and motivate a wide range of students. Kits that focus on the life sciences, such as "Butterflies and Moths," are among the most popular and give children access to spectacular specimens to enhance their science curriculum.
"We are thrilled to once again receive Genzyme's critical support of our Kits for Teachers program," said Carole Charnow, President & CEO at Boston Children's Museum. "Teaching kits bring the Museum's hands-on learning philosophy directly to the classroom, allowing children to develop critical thinking, teamwork, observation and data collection - all vital skills that are central to science learning."
Genzyme, one of the world's leading biotechnology companies, supports science education and health-related initiatives to meet local community needs.
