Joe on the Go
Joseph Leidy was said to be the last man to know everything. Even when he was just a boy, he was always trying to understand his world. Known as the Father of American Vertebrate paleontology, Joe was always on the go. In the spirit of Joseph Leidy, the Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University wants you to engage with the world of science in your classroom and take one of natural history’s most important figures with you! Include Lil’ Leidy in your experiments, take a picture, and share your explorations with the Academy!
Check out our Joe on the Go Teacher’s Guide for activities your class can do that relate to the amazing work that Joseph Leidy did throughout his career. Whether he was solving a mystery by taking a close look at cell structure or piecing together fossil remains of an ancient beast based on a modern-day descendant, Joseph Leidy was always on the go! Let’s join in celebrating 200 years of discovery at the Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University and take Joe on the Go!
