Bring Collections to Your Classroom
The N. W. Harris Learning Collection at The Field Museum offers over 1,500 treasures for educators and parents to borrow. Use the materials from our Learning Collection to engage learners in scientific practices, develop critical thinking skills, and pique curiosity about Earth’s natural and cultural diversity. Check out these exciting resources connected to  Creatures of Light: Nature’s Bioluminescence :
