Bring fun and interactive activities to your classroom by checking out one of our Climate Kids Traveling Trunks!
Climate Kids Traveling Trunks provide all the resources you need to teach climate science in the classroom. Each trunk includes background information, lesson plans, powerpoints, activities, and materials to increase climate literacy for K-12th grade youth. Our three trunks feature interactive and hands on science, storytelling and art curriculum aligned to NGSS.
The trunks can be checked out for a period of two weeks and picked up from our partners at the San Diego Natural History Museum's Nature to You Loan Program.
Teachers who participate in the traveling trunk program have the opportunity to win a free field trip!

NEW!! TRIBAL PERSPECTIVES (K-12)
Climate change impacts Tribal communities in a variety of different ways including drought, water availability, and heat events that affect food security, public health, and natural resources. Each of our traveling trunks now include educational resources and materials that integrate indigenous knowledge, art, and storytelling to better incorporate the perspectives of our Tribal communities.
