Parks as Classrooms

Curriculum Materials

George Washington Carver said, " The thoughtful educator realizes that a very large part of the child's education must be gotten outside of the four walls designated as classroom." A variety of education materials have been combined in an education packet for teachers and homeschool parents.

Materials to Loan

The park has several George Washington Carver films to loan.

Field Trips

George Washington Carver said, "The thoughtful educator realizes that a very large part of the child's education must be gotten outside of the four walls designated as classroom." The park is an excellent setting for students to learn about Carver's life. Curriculum-based field trips are available for all grades K-12.

Traveling Trunks

During his years at Tuskegee Institute, Carver designed and outfitted the first movable school, known as the Jesup Wagon, as an outreach to rural families who were unable to travel to the school. The George Washington Carver traveling trunk has a similar purpose, reaching out to children who may not be able to visit the park. Traveling trunks are available for loan on a monthly basis.
