Engage your students in hands-on, interactive learning! By trying on and examining U.S. and Mexican military uniforms and equipment, your students will better understand the daily life of a U.S.-Mexican War soldier.
TEKS-based lesson plans teach about the causes and consequences of the war and the life of a soldier during the war. Materials include replica uniforms and accoutrements, an educator overview, lesson plans and student worksheets, and a timeline.
Trunks target students in grades 4 -7. In addition, these trunks can serve as mini-museums. They can be set up as exhibits or used to kick-off or conclude your studies on the U.S.-Mexican War. Due to shipping costs, we are limited to distributing trunks to teachers able to pick up and drop off in person.
