The “Trunk Tales” Program has been designed to enhance a social studies curriculum at the elementary level. The original concept originated with the Museum Director’s desire to develop a traveling program for the museum. The program is an offshoot of the museum’s educational outreach activities designed to make local history and cultural resources more accessible for instructors at the elementary level. The program uses ‘hands-on’ learning and activities in the classroom to communicate history and provides a way for the instructor to incorporate museum resources into classroom teaching. The program is similar in scope to what other historical organizations are doing.
