The Education department at Jefferson Patterson Park & Museum has created unique traveling trunks available to any Maryland teacher to enhance their students' learning experience. Our trunks focus on two distinct subjects in Maryland's history: Native Americans people pre-contact and the lives of Marylanders during the War of 1812. While both trunks were created with the 4th grade curriculum in mind, the lessons can easily be adapted to older and younger audiences. Feel free to preview the lessons from both trunks on their website.
Jefferson Patterson Park & Museum's (JPPM) traveling trunks are available to all Maryland public and private schools. Teachers should contact the JPPM Education Coordinator, at 410-586-8502, or email e-mail us with questions or to schedule a rental.
The three week rental fee for the traveling trunk is $50.00 for on-site pick-up, or $175.00 for the trunk to be shipped. Please see the rental agreement for further details.
