Portable School Programs: We'll Bring Local History to Your Classroom!
Portable Programs are free for all Elmhurst Schools and $25 for all other groups. Museum staff or volunteers bring interactive, history-related programs into your classroom. Programs can be customized to your curriculum or area of study. The current lineup of Portable School Programs includes:
Kids take a fascinating journey through Elmhurst history through artifacts and hands-on activities (Grade 2-4).
Becoming an Immigrant
Pack a trunk with German immigrants from the 1800s to learn about what people brought to the New World (Grade 2-4).
Students learn how children of the past played through games and toys such as cup-and-ball, spinning tops and hoop-and-sticks (Grade Pre K-5).
