Zooroom City: An "Action" Centered Museum in the Classroom.
Hunt, John D.; Peltz, Stephen
The University of Northern Colorado allowed the Department of Science Education to convert a room into a classroom museum called the Zooroom City. The classroom contains 85 stuffed or injected animals and 30 live animals. The room is used eight hours a day, six hours for college methods classes and two hours for elementary students. Questionnaire data from a survey of about 500 teachers regarding the use of the Zooroom City, descriptions of the exhibits, and student comments and questions regarding the exhibits are included.
