The Traveling Trunk presentation is one of the most visible aspects of SAR education outreach program. This program is presented free of cost to the schools.
Our speaker’s bureau members (in colonial uniform) normally make our traveling trunk presentations to 4th and 8th grade students, when the Revolutionary War topics are typically taught. The picture above was taken at one of our presentations to 8th grade students at Vickery Creek Middle school. We cover items and topics that are representative of what life was like during colonial times. The presentations are interactive with student participation, and are enthusiastically received by both students and their teachers. Through “Show and Tell”, audience participation, and questions and answers everybody can see and experience what life was like over 200 years ago.
With permission from the school principal, we include muskets as part of the presentation. If muskets are not permitted in a school, we will not bring them.
We are able to make multiple presentations throughout the school day in order to cover all the students. Normally, holding the presentations in the school’s media center and having the student classes rotate in will work best.
