Also, to put the pupils in possession of certain fundamental truths which give an explanation of everyday life and to help the pupils learn a few of the forces and their effects which surround them. The projects have been selected largely

The Teaching Museum should include enlarged models of the different protozoa.

Accurate models of the typical laboratory forms will clear up much of the vagueness that confuses the student in his early dissections.

Models showing the embryological development of Amphioxus, Frog, etc., will enable the teacher to present the principles of animal growth and development in a vivid clean cut fashion.
