World War 2 Trunks

The World War 2 trunk helps teachers dive deeper into this incredibly important historical topic. The photos, artifacts and hands-on activities will give students a deeper understanding of the war's effects nationwide and on Nebraska specifically.

In fact, our World War 2 trunk contains so much that we actually had to split it in two! When you reserve this trunk, you will be receiving two trunks that combine to help tell the story of this pivotal time in our history.
