The Field museum of Natural History in Chicago

The Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago has a Science Hub at Home with pages of activities for children pre-K through grade 12. One favorite activity was to help children create a museum – of personally important items – at home, label the collection, and give tours to family members. The page explains how the Field’s collections are organized, and includes scientific vocabulary like specimen and taxonomy. This page could inspire a career as a curator. Ahmat says best access is with a desktop or laptop. Other science activities here. You’ll need to explore to find those that will work well for children with vision loss.
