Reserve a Mission Inn Foundation Traveling Trunk
The Mission Inn is soft launching two traveling trunks in 2022 through the generous support of the E. Rhodes and Leona B. Carpenter Foundation. The trunks feature all the materials to complete two lesson plans aimed at 3rd and 4th grade. Through our object based lesson plan, students will interact with artifacts from the Mission Inn’s 100 years of operation and use critical thinking to determine their use. The second lesson plan connects and contrasts the local history of Riverside and life of Mission Inn founder Frank Miller with American history.
These trunks are available for free to all schools or educational institutions within Riverside, Moreno Valley, and Jurupa Valley for two week periods. You are encouraged to pick-up the trunk at the Mission Inn Museum, but the trunk can be dropped-off free of charge.
