Teacher Testimonials

Mollusk Dichotomous Key

The Mollusk Dichotomous Key lab is scaffolded perfectly. The activities build upon each other and take kids from simple concepts like observing pasta, to the complex skill of being able to create a key for unfamiliar mollusks. We also really loved learning about bivalves and gastropods and it lead to a good deal of fun discovery. --Kristy McElhinny

Comparative Skulls

The kids really enjoyed [this lab] and the student guides were perfect– they were able to work through all on their own!

What teachers are saying...

CIBT allows me to bring cutting edge research and technology into my classroom to inspire the next generation of scientists. I love CIBT! Thank you for everything you do to inspire teachers and students!

CIBT is so special! I now have access to a wonderful group of people, a library of materials and lessons that I use with hundreds of children. Those lessons, kits, and materials are the favorite of our primary and elementary students, and are requested each year as a part of Science Adventure Day!

Throughout the years of my teaching these workshops have been the most inspirational experiences I have had.

CIBT has been an invaluable resource for me as a new teacher in an extremely diverse population of students. Over 85% of my students are classified as emotionally disturbed and often have a difficult time sitting through mundane lessons without behaviors becoming an issue. The kits supplied by CIBT have bolstered my occasionally boring curriculum and engaged my visual/tactile learners with great models and activities. --Maura Egan-Martin
