Darwin’s Treasure Chest provides kids, parents, and educators a fun way to learn about evolution and the history of life on Earth through scientifically accurate, downloadable printable models and written content. Quite a bit of work was done on the project pro bono in an effort to attract Kickstarter interest. The Kickstarter effort failed to get the project is now on hold. Other sources of funding are being sought. Ultimately, the idea is to be able to provide this fun lesson plan to schools and home schoolers at very low or no cost.
