The One Room School day traveling trunk was designed by Homestead National Historical Park staff. This trunk uses student-centered activities to increase student's knowledge of what school was like in the late 19th century. The trunk contains resources for educators to use in a classroom environment. It integrates written and oral activities, and games to enhance your student's learning.
The trunk includes curriculum materials, books, and slates that can be integrated into history, science, social studies, art, reading, and language arts curriculum. Additionally, the curriculum materials include student station sheets, so students can rotate stations without the teacher having to repeat instructions.
Minnie, a Buddy Bison, travels with the One Room School Day 3-6 traveling trunk. She records all of her adventures. Be sure if you request this trunk that you e-mail photos and stories of her adventures with your class. Your class can then track her travels all year long.
