Online ResourcesAbundant online resources for grades K-12 are available through the Museum's Education site and Resources for Learning, which you can browse by topic, search by keyword, and sort by type and grade level.
This online version of the exhibition highlights fun facts, videos, and interactives—including the chance for visitors with webcams to see themselves "holding" a 3D model of the shrew-like Batodonoides, the smallest mammal that ever lived.
Resources across all grade levels include a "Tree of Life" video and a "Soar with Bats" interactive. There are three categories of activities: living mammals, extinct mammals, and the Tree of Life.
This site gives younger students the chance to explore big ideas about mammals and other animals though games, puzzles, and interactives. They can examine how six cool mammals move, explore the Extreme Mammal photo gallery, use masks to compare their teeth to those of different mammals, and make a moving-mammal flip book.
Videos, interactives, and essays introduce middle- and high-school students to biologists and conservationists who study mammals around the world. Learn about the reintroduction of Mongolia's takhi to its homeland (The Last Wild Horse); the challenge of returning Thailand's captive elephants to the forest (Wild at Heart); the first clone of a threatened species (Cloning and Conservation); and the diverse and endangered primates of the world's largest island (Lemurs of Madagascar).
