  • Touch-its
  • Cross-curricula activity sheets emphasizing math, science, and writing
  • Primary sources
  • Games
  • Multi-media resources, such as CDs and DVDs. A CD with the digital files of many of the activities is also included for teachers to keep.

The backpacks are available in seven themes. Click on a picture below to see a complete inventory list of each backpack.
