Replica artifacts and trunk

Replica trunks can be checked out for use in your classroom or reserved for on-site visits. Unfortunately, they are too big to ship and must be picked up at the park. The trunks include numerous replica artifacts, the Footprints of the Past video, and a teacher's guide. The teacher's guide includes lesson plans, activities, and suggestions for planning a field trip. Call 505-334-6174 ext. 228 to reserve a trunk for your classroom.
