Discovery Boxes

 

cMoe and the Old National Bank Foundation are pleased to present our Discovery Box program! This is a unique outreach program that brings aspects of the museum to classrooms, with an emphasis on standards-based learning. Discovery Boxes give teachers a complete, portable curriculum featuring hands-on, standards-based lessons that can be adapted to grade level and individual classroom needs! Borrow a box for free and use the books, manipulatives, extension materials, and interactive whiteboard lessons over the course of 2 weeks to bring the curriculum to life.

To borrow a box, please make sure you fill out a 2017-18 Lending Agreement (attached). You only need to do this once per school year. Then, to request a box, email Director of Education, Ben Baker, [email protected] with your prefered dates.
