Explore Minnesota’s Biomes Kit
The Will Steger Foundation is pleased to offer Explore Minnesota’s Biomes Kits to borrow for educators in the metro area.
Explore Minnesota's Biomes Kit Contents include:
- Insignia Digital Camera (with a case, memory card, and 2-year warranty including incidental damages)
- 3 Field Guides (Prairies & Potholes; Big River, Big Woods; and North Woods, Great Lakes)
- 3 Magnifying Glasses (6X, 8X, 10X Power)
- 2 Rulers
- Rain Gauge
- Cloud Chart
- Biome Meet and Greet Laminated Activity cards
Educators may borrow kits for up to three weeks and must agree to use the kit in their classroom and in an outdoor setting with my students. In addition they will be required to share the results of classroom observations and investigations via the Minnesota’s Changing Climate online classroom.
We strongly suggest the use of activities found in the Minnesota’s Changing Climate Grades 3-8 and 9-12 curriculum to be used in conjunction with the kit.
