HIGH SCHOOL LESSONS
|travelin' trunks | ELEMENTARY LESSONS | HIGH SCHOOL|
Educators across the United States are welcome to borrow the Travelin’ Trunks to help students learn the history of Grand Canyon. These trunks help teach the importance of the canyon in art, literature, environmental understandings, government policies, relationships between peoples, recreation, science, and the tourism industry. They also teach the recent history of indigenous peoples who have been active participants in the ongoing historical drama of the canyon and still have connections to the National Park.
The curriculum for the trunks is aligned with Arizona and national standards for social studies, reading, and writing, and engages the students in practical problem solving. Below are two sample travelin' trunks; one on architect Mary Colter and one on Art at Grand Canyon.
