Can’t get to the museum? Let us bring the museum to you!
Traveling Trunk Sponsor of the Month
In April, Service Credit Union is sponsoring a trunk, which will be delivered to a school district in NH at no cost to them. This is a fantastic partnership and one that not only educates kids in the classroom, but outside of it, as families of children served by this program can visit the Museum for FREE.
Traveling Trunk Program for Schools
Our Traveling Trunk Education Program allows you to bring the museum right into your classroom. Rent our trunk for an entire and utilize all of the items in ways that best reach your students. Although the program’s lesson plan is specifically designed for grades 5 through 8, the program may be customized to suit younger students. There is something fun for everyone!
- Utilize lesson plans to dig deeper and learn more
- Read books and documents relating to the Revolution
- Touch and try on reproduction 18th century clothing and accessories
- Play with colonial toys
For one hour, let our museum educator take your students back in time. He/she will come to your classroom and present a lesson utilizing the materials from the trunk.
While trunks are affordable to schools, the Museum makes every effort to secure sponsors each month that would enable us to provide this experience at no charge to schools. Ask about our corporate sponsorship program.
If you’re interested in the programs, please contact our Education Manager Abigail Pietrantonio at firstname.lastname@example.org or 603-772-2622 for more information.
