Climate Kids Traveling Trunks are education kits with everything that you need to teach youth about a variety of topics related to climate change impacts and solutions.

Each Trunk contains NGSS-aligned curricula that can be used and adapted for grade levels K-12. Lessons utilize hands-on science, art, and storytelling activities containing real data on regional impacts, accompanied by a Tribal Perspectives module. Traveling Trunks engage participants using a variety of learning styles, and include solutions-oriented approaches to learning about that science and impacts of climate change.
