The Educator’s Guides are an essential component of your Alf Museum experience. You will find the appropriate guide for your use under the headings below. If you will be visiting the Alf Museum for a tour, you will use the Educator’s Guide for grades K-4 or the Educator’s Guide for grades 5-8. If you will be borrowing a fossil kit, you will use the Science Connections Educator’s Guide for grades K-4.
We encourage you to download and print the applicable Educator’s Guide to use prior to your visit to the museum or in classroom use of a fossil kit. The Educator’s Guide includes background information about the Alf Museum and the science of paleontology, a summary of our museum guidelines and what to expect, a pre-visit checklist, a series of California Science Content-aligned activities/exercises for classroom use before and/or after your visit or classroom presentation, and a list of relevant terms and additional resources. Please contact us if you need an Educator’s Guide mailed to you.
