Resources for Teachers

On this page you will find links to AIM-UP! educational modules and tutorials to help use museum databases and tools. The modules are intended to introduce students to the vast resources (specimens) available in natural history museums worldwide. In the past, these specimens were unavailable to educators but now - with digitized information available over the web - teachers and students can begin to explore this previously hidden library of biodiversity.
