We know field trips are not always possible, and for that reason, the museum has created Traveling Trunks about the history and natural history of Nevada for educators. Trunk materials include touchable artifacts, curriculum objectives, photographs, videos, books, posters, readings, and more.
Trunks are free to use and delivered to schools for free too – thanks to the Friends of NSMLV!
Each trunk focuses on an aspect of human and natural history with related study guides, state standards and ideas about activities to help incorporate the topic into the classroom. Some trunks now have information available online, such as videos and study guides; just click on the title to find out more.
