In addition to our article last month explaining how EHT provides fossil resource boxes for schools across Herefordshire and Worcestershire. We are delighted to share with you the delivery of the 11th school fossil box to St Richard’s Primary School in Evesham, with an impromptu lesson for the class by EHT Trustee, Mark Baggott.
Each 4-litre box contains 2 trays of fossils from locations across the UK along with details of each fossil type and some additional laminated materials for the teachers. We have worked with teachers to ensure the boxes tie in with the national curriculum to maximise their use.
Fossils included in the boxes have been donated from collectors across the UK which helps keep costs down, and funding for the boxes comes from fossil sales, donations, and sponsorship of individual boxes to schools, so boxes are free to schools.
If you would like to nominate a local school to receive a box or would like to make a donation or sponsor a box, or have fossils to donate for use in the boxes, or would like to arrange a talk to your local interest group on the fossil boxes, please get in touch.
