History-To-Go Loan Cases

History-To-Go Loan Cases are a collection of hands-on artifacts and activities that are designed to engage students while teaching them about local history through primary resources. Each traveling unit is housed in a suitcase and can supplement existing classroom activities for any grade level.

Loan cases are distributed on a first come, first serve basis and are available for up to two weeks at no charge. The loan cases must be picked up and returned to CCHS.

For more information about education programs at CCHS contact Susan Zehnder, Education Director at 607-734-4167, ext. 205 or educator@chemungvalleymuseum.org.
