Customizable Materials for Your Classroom
Teaching Trunks give educators access to teaching resources needed to teach a comprehensive Holocaust unit and implement Holocaust education into their lessons. The Holocaust Center loans class size sets of Holocaust related materials to teachers in Central Florida.
Teaching Trunks contain curricula as well as photo, print, and audio-visual resources appropriate for student use. Teaching Trunks are available for use in public and private schools in Central Florida free of charge. Many other Holocaust Centers across the United States have adopted our concept for use in their own communities. The Holocaust Center regularly updates trunk materials to provide schools with the best available resources.
Trunks can be customized to accommodate class size, learning level, and the length of the loan period.
