Packed with lesson plans, primary source documents, reproduction artifacts, movies, and more, our Traveling Trunks are a ready-made and easy way to make New York City and U.S. history tangible to students. Designed to align closely with New York City Public School curriculum, each trunk also includes a teacher's guide, with comprehensive instructions for each interactive lesson and activity. Created to facilitate a place-based learning experience, and show history through the lens of Governors Island, lessons with the trunk are best concluded with a visit to Governors Island and the historic structures of the National Monument.
