Do your students want to wear chaps, hear the jingle of spurs as they walk across the room, or feel the rawhide of a quirt? The Grant-Kohrs Ranch traveling trunk can be used to enhance the study of the history of cowboys, cattlemen, and the open range cattle era. Each trunk contains period photographs, reproduction clothing, and a teacher’s guide with grade-specific activities. The activities can be adapted for any grade level.
Throughout history, the people of Jackson Hole have fostered a connection to this landscape. Our history trunk allows students to explore some of the stories of these connections. In this trunk you will find lessons, resources, and activities for three separate human history topics: Native Americans, Trappers, and Explorers. Students will learn how humans have responded and adapted to the environment of the park. These activities are designed with the 4th grade student in mind.
