Sandburg Satchels
Bring Carl Sandburg Home NHS into your classroom through these lesson plan units on-the-go. It is a self-contained unit that travels the way Sandburg did, by satchel. Designed for teachers to have everything they need to engage elementary, middle and high school students to study Sandburg the day the satchel arrives in the classroom. It contains reproductions of items found in the Sandburg home and museum collection.

There is no fee for the satchel. The park covers the costs of shipping and supplies. Please e-mail or call the Education Coordinator at 828-693-4178 for more information.
