When a field trip to the dunes is not an option, think about reserving one of our Teacher Resource Trunks. Each trunk contains everything you need to teach the section. For a list of what is included in each trunk, download the inventory sheet.
We currently have four trunks available to choose from:
1) Giant Geology
2) Practical Plants
3) Amazing Animals
4) Human History
To request a trunk please submit the following request form. If you are wanting the trunk mailed to you please contact the education department specifically at firstname.lastname@example.org.
After you've had a chance to use the trunks in your classroom, we would appreciate hearing your comments and suggestions. Your feedback really helps us improve the resources we offer and our services to the schools. Simply download the feedback form and return it to us.
