Aunt Phil's Trunk Needs a Home in Grayling, Alaska

Help me give my students Aunt Phil's Trunk which is a group of 5 volumes with Teacher Guides and student workbooks that are filled with short stories about Alaska, please!

My Students

My students are from a small Native village in Alaska. Our village is on the Iditarod Trail, Grayling, Alaska. They are kind-hearted children that have to overcome a great deal to get a high school diploma.

Aunt Phil's Trunk is a collection of books bringing Alaska history alive and is the project I am requesting.

Life in Grayling is in the "Bush" which means the only way to get in and out of the village is by plane, snow machine, or if you are lucky enough by being a musher.

Next year I will be teaching Alaska history. Aunt Phil's trunk comes in 5 installments, with workbooks and a teacher guide. The books are written by one of Alaska's most respected historians and covers Alaskan history from statehood through the oil pipeline in Prudhoe Bay.

My Project

There are pictures of historical events from Alaska Statehood through the Alaskan Pipeline. The students find the stories interesting and the pictures makes the stories visual. This series brings Alaska's history alive!

The environments, historical figures and stories help students understand their Native history.

These books will help readers picture lessons and help them understand learning outcomes. These books create real stories as oppose to facts and figures.

These books can be used over and over again and many students will benefit from these actual historical accounts and pictures. These books will bring Alaska Alive to students who never leave the village.
