Traveling Resources

These traveling backpacks and trunks are outreach tools designed to supplement the classroom learning experience. They correspond with the Alabama Course of Study: Social Studies standards and include an assortment of learning tools such as activity sheets, books, videos, and copies of primary resources. Click on the subjects below for more information about the contents of each backpack or trunk, and use this form to reserve a resource.

Packs and trunks are available on a first come, first served basis and are loaned out for one week (from Friday to Friday). Teachers are required to pay UPS shipping fees, $10.00 per backpack and $50.00 per trunk.

Development of this resource is made possible by generous funding from the Friends of the Alabama Archives.
