Discovery Trunks

Discovery Trunks


Discovery Trunks are just that…trunks filled with hands-on, curriculum-enhancing natural resource materials and lesson plans for students kindergarten through sixth grade.

Trunks are shipped year-round to Texas educators at NO COST (thanks to underwriting).  Last year, Discovery Trunks reached 77,952 students and due to such high-demand, there is a waiting list.  Please consider giving the gift of education by underwriting the Discovery Trunk program. All trunk materials are aligned with the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) state standards.
