Buffalo Trace Boxes

The Buffalo Trace Educational Boxes will be provided to each school in the eight counties which the buffalo trace historically crossed. Each box contains hands-on items and activities which link children to their history and bring buffalo, surveyors, rangers and the early postal riders alive for kids. Items such as buffalo teeth, hide and horn will be included. Buffalo nickels and rifle barrels from a ranger’s rifle all have a story to bring to life. A teacher’s guide walks teachers through lesson plans and links to Indiana standards.
