Pre-visit Resources: Wandering Western Chests
Wandering Western Chests provide resources that focus on the American cowboy, Native American culture, and coming soon Oklahoma history. Teachers can tailor their program to accommodate any grade level. Items in the trunks include artifacts, tools, clothing, images of artwork from the Museum’s collection, primary source activities, assessment suggestions, and story books to share with students. Utilize the chests to help provide students a glimpse of their upcoming Museum visit, supplement campus based activities, or enrich content sections by adding hands-on materials and lessons to your classroom. The Wandering Western Chests are free of charge to pick up or drop off.
