Bring the UM Museum to your classroom today!
The University of Mississippi Museum is proud to offer a free Traveling Trunk program that brings the art, history, and culture of the museum to your classroom or organization.
Our presenters will travel within a one-hour radius of Oxford to present the trunks, or teachers may check the trunks out themselves for up to two weeks of use. Each trunk provides lessons that meet current grade-specific standards, educational objects or images, and artistic materials to enrich classroom studies.
Trunk lessons will contain the following:
- A Thematic Introduction
- Materials and Instructions for a Visual Arts Component
- A Language Arts Component
- A Social Studies or History Component
