Glacier National Park is just one of several agencies and non-profit organizations that have educational trunks available. Wondering what else is out there? Click here for a printable list of additional trunks that are available to classroom teachers and home schoolers in NW Montana. Suggested grades listed for each trunk are those that work particularly well. But creative teachers can successfully adapt every trunk to be used in any classroom. Most trunks are free of charge and can be checked out for one or two week periods. Contact each agency for more information about their trunk contents and check-out procedures.
In 2010 the Montana Library System and Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks anounced "Ready 2 Read Goes Wild!" educational trunks about Montana wildlife that are now available through the public library system. Read the anouncement about this new educational resource.
If you know of another good trunk that's out there, but not listed here, e-mail us to let us all know.
