If you have unique Ideas for the Classroom, we want to hear from you. We would like to showcase creative projects made from items you received in the Teacher Free Store. Please submit your ideas (pictures and descriptions) to Stefanie Clayton.


King Studios Traveling Suitcases

The King Studios Traveling Suitcases are educational toolkits that use replica artifacts, technology and lesson plans to tell the story of King Studios through art, music, entrepreneurship, civil rights and science. The unique Suitcases pay tribute to the traveling musicians that cultivated King's musical and historical legacy throughout the world with a "suitcase" in hand, and are designed for educational use in K-12 classrooms. Each suitcase contains artifacts and educational materials and is aligned to Ohio Content Standards.

We are proud to partner with King Studios and Xavier University to distribute the Suitcases to K-12 teachers in our service area. Teachers interested in learning more about the Suitcases and reserving one for use in your classroom should CLICK HERE
