Pioneer Trunk

A hands-on exhibit of what a pioneer family would have packed to take with them in a covered wagon.  TCHS volunteers are available to present this trunk to a classroom in a 30-60 minute program.  Alternatively, a teacher may borrow the trunk to use in the classroom.  Everything in the trunk is meant to be touched by the students.

3rd Grade Field Trip

TCHS has developed a field trip with historical programming to introduce third graders to local history. The students arrive at the historical site and participate in five 20 minute sessions, led by TCHS volunteers in period dress.

The children experience a one room school house, learn about Kanza Indian culture, customs, and daily life, experience hands-on interactions with antique tools, tour the museum, and learn some children's games of the late 1800's.

For more details on this field trip, read our Third Grade Program Overview.

The program qualifies for a grant from Freedom's Frontier to reimburse up to 75% of the transportation costs of the field trip.  For more information on that program, click here.

To expand this program to a full day, contact the museum director for more information.

Use of the One Room Schoolhouse
