America's Melting Pot - Immigration Traveling Trunk

The America's Melting Pot - Immigration traveling trunk focuses on immigration and the many ways and reasons people came to this country, from America’s beginnings to present day. To explore our ethnically diverse country, this program's content also encourages exploring various cultures, keepsakes, and memories, and how all of these factors make America a true melting pot.

Included with this trunk is a teacher's guide with the programs content, a timeline, a world map with attachable icons and markers to plot your student's families' countries of origin, historic artifacts to prompt discussion on keepsakes and heirlooms, immigrant photograph props, and a related story in English and Spanish. Students have the opportunity to speak with their own families to get their immigration stories to go along with a provided worksheet as well as activity prompts.

This program is appropriate for all ages and opens up important dialogues into our past and current immigrants, diverse populations, and how America is truly a melting pot of cultures and peoples. It has also been very successful with ESL groups and current students who themselves or their parents are immigrants. Visit our website for full details!

History Detectives Traveling Trunk

Shawnee Town has developed two History Detectives traveling trunks designed to allow fourth grade through high school students the opportunity to handle 1910’s - 1930’s artifacts, such as The Saturday Evening Post, World War I iron soldiers and a “Lindy” airplane, paper dolls, garden tools, black and white photographs, butter mold, button hook, etc. In almost every case, these are the real thing from the early twentieth century. The artifacts are carefully packed in a 1920's suitcase along with a magnifying glasses and description forms for students.

Students will work in small groups to examine their assigned item, research it and present their findings to you and their class. Teachers receive a brief guide with a description of each item, its history, lead questions to ask the students, useful links, and lesson expansion ideas. The program is open-ended to allow you easily tailor it to meet the needs and abilities of your students and your time frame; it can be a quick straight-forward activity or an in-depth and challenging one. Kansas curriculum standards this program meets are also included in the teacher's guide corresponding to each grade.

This is an excellent program for putting students in touch (literally) with history! They have an opportunity to be a museum curator for the day and experience what museum professionals do with each artifact that the museum accepts. In some cases, they will learn that items have multiple and sometimes surprising uses over time. See our website for all the details!

School of Rock Performance-Based Music Programs Rock Socializing— With Social Distancing

Kids have been inspired in the School of Rock community for the last 8 and half years, learning music by playing music– together. Through programs designed for all skill levels, students go from lessons and rehearsal to performance– developing confidence, talent and teamwork skills along the way. Students, ages 7 to 18 engage in a private, one-on-one lesson. Those weekly lessons come with a bonus: the chance to be a rock star. Once enrolled, students become part of a band as well, and play in a socially distanced rehearsal each week. Bands are determined by skill level and age. They practice together for a season (about 4 months) and then play a show. This unique approach allows students to use what they learn from their teacher in the real-world setting of a band, comprised of their peers. They learn to rock on stage and in life.

School of Rock community members also have access to our one-of-a-kind, fully integrated Method app. The App provides an enhanced learning experience and reinforced practice schedule. Parents and students know what should be worked on and progress can be tracked.
