Resources For Teachers

Bat Boxes Available!

Bat box contents

The TNBWG created outreach boxes full of hands-on teaching aids about bats for teachers and other environmental educators. In these boxes, you will find books for all age groups, along with bat skeletons and preserved guano samples. Demonstrate how scientists catch bats with mini mist-nets. Show kids the diversity of food types eaten by bats with a bat lunch box. Do you know how big the largest bat is? Show kids the almost 6-foot wingspan with a felt bat.
