The American Museum of Natural History’s “The Horse” will be on exhibit at the Kentucky Horse Park Oct. 22, 2011, through Apr. 6, 2012.

The comprehensive exhibit aims to educate classes on all aspects of the horse, from its biology to its impact on society.

This exhibition is ideal for 3rd- through 12th-grade science teachers and directly correlates with much of the Core Content for Assessment. Social studies themes, such as history and world cultures, and art also are covered. The exhibit can make an informative and entertaining trip for students in middle and high school.

Prepared and informative educators’ guides are available through the American Museum of Natural History. The guides include questions to develop discussions, key terms and ideas, and games. The supplemental material related to Kentucky is available here, and all other materials are available at
