Captain John Smith Chesapeake National Historic Trail
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.
