The Alamo's Education Team is ready to help educators kick off the new school year!

We're relaunching History Trunks for classrooms. History Trunks are free resources that teachers can pick up or have the Alamo ship to their school. Get hands-on with Texas History through accurate reproductions of everyday items from the 1830s and 1840s. Trunks can be borrowed for two-week periods. Requests open September 15 and educators can reserve their trunks online. Trunks will be sent to schools starting October 2.

And in our Unpacking History Trunks workshop on the evening of September 12, educators can learn in-person about the trunk contents and the primary documents that connect them to the Alamo. They'll experiment with different ways to use the trunks and new supplemental resources in the classroom. Teachers receive a 2 CPE certificate upon participation and can register for the event on the Alamo website.
