Real Artifacts -- Real Learning!

The Raptor Center's Discovery Trunks include real feet, feathers, wings, skulls, and bones! Our trunks were designed by Minnesota teachers with subject-oriented learning materials and educational tools to be used by groups of any age.

Each trunk has its own activity guide with exciting activities concentrating on specific aspects of different raptors and their home ecosystems. A variety of videotapes, audiotapes, posters, books, coloring books, and games are included in the trunk.
