Baseball cards or Brontosaurus bones -whatever you’re collecting, there’s a method to the madness.
The New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science was approached by Quarry Books to produce a book on collecting for a series featuring museums nationwide. Michael Sanchez, who is with the department of education at the museum, took on the challenge of producing a book teaching kids how to find, catalog and analyze collections.
The book is designed for kids ages 6 and up, and will introduce elements of the scientific method in a fun and engaging way.
The book is on sale now at Natureworks, the gift shop at the Museum of Natural History and Science in Albuquerque.
