Traveling Trunk Program
The program is FREE and was designed with each of the Four C’s of 21st century learning in mind: Collaboration, Communication, Critical Thinking, and Creativity. This program is also very flexible, as our educator can also come to your classroom/facility and present a lesson with materials from the trunk at no cost to you!
Long gone are the days of students simply memorizing facts and dates in history class. Today, best practices related to the teaching of history actively encourage research, judgment of the accuracy and reliability of sources, validation of facts, and an awareness of multiple perspectives and biases.
Who Is This Program For?
Inside the trunk, which features more than 70 items, you’ll find a binder with lesson plans and ideas for classroom activities. Although the program’s lesson plans are specifically designed with grades 5 through 8 in mind, the program may be customized to suit younger students. You may also include your own lesson plans in the curriculum binder.
