Bring Homestead National Historical Park to your classroom with a traveling trunk!
Homestead National Historical Park proudly offers traveling trunks with curriculum to fit your students needs. Enhance your students learning with these hands-on activities. Homestead's traveling trunks are designed so that teachers and students anywhere can receive hands-on educational materials relating to the Homestead Act and westward expansion. The trunks are easily shipped in a large flat rate box from the United States Postal Service. The only costs associated with "borrowing" a trunk is the return postage.
Additionally, each traveling trunk comes with it's own Buddy Bison. The Buddy Bison travel with each trunk to collect the stories of the classrooms they visit. Snap a picture of your buddy with your class and send it back with your trunk or through email.
The policy for each traveling trunk is listed on the bottom of the page.
