This trunk breaks down some pretty complicated physics into bite-sized chunks for both teachers and students. Teachers will love it because their plans, materials, PowerPoint presentations, tests and handouts are all right there. Students will love it because the trunk provides TONS of hand-on learning opportunities geared to multiple intelligence and different ability levels.
