|Our "traveling trunks" of educational resource materials give teachers activities and curriculum support for a variety of landmark lessons.|
Bring your community’s heritage into the classroom with two education resource kits delivered to your door. Both kits include activities, games, and lessons designed to open students’ eyes and minds to their environment. Each kit comes equipped with two activity books for teachers and plenty of hands-on materials for students.
Use Traveling Trunk kits
- to supplement a semester-long unit on architecture and community
- to enhance a week- or day-long exercise on a historic site
- as materials for inside recess options
