Traveling Trunks

 

Traveling Educational Trunk Program

The HSPBC’s Traveling Trunks offer exciting classroom resources that meet Florida Sunshine State Standards. Trunks are based on specific themes and contain information, activities, and reproductions of artifacts to enhance students’ understanding of Palm Beach County and Florida history. Teacher Guides are also provided. Most of the trunks are designed for Grade 4 but can be adapted for other levels. The trunks are loaned to teachers for three-week periods on a first come, first served basis. There is no charge or deposit for their use. 

To reserve a trunk call 561.832.4164 ext. 112 or email.
