Loan materials are programs packed in a box for educators to use in their classroom. In addition to the prepared lesson, each box contains primary source documents and/or historical objects or reproduction items. Each box is free for use by the educator.
Unless otherwise noted, objects are provided for students to handle and observe with adult supervision and can be used as an exhibit for the classroom.
Discovery Boxes (PDF) are available on a first-come-first-served basis and should be reserved in advance; they may be checked out for up to 2 weeks at a time.
A to Z in the Ozark
The A to Z in the Ozark (PDF) program is a series designed to enrich basic learning in the classroom. Each of the 26 history lessons can stand alone or be used together. In addition, the lessons and activities often cross the boundaries of other curriculum such as math, science, and language arts. They can be used to supplement phonics programs, and are designed to be used by the teacher.
Corporate sponsorship of the museum's loan materials for schools is provided by Newell Rubbermaid.
