The Illinois State Museum’s website offers a sizable collection of online activities, online exhibits, and downloadable lesson plans. Most of the online activities and exhibits are built around themes dealing with Illinois history and science. The lesson plans section offers resources that teachers anywhere can use in their classrooms. There are multiple, in most cases dozens, of lesson plans for every K-12 content area.

I was initially drawn to the Illinois State Museum’s lesson plan collection while searching for some resources about zoology. The zoology lesson plan collection, like the other collections, provides a mix of learning activities that can be done online and offline.
