Bluecross Blueshield World Cargo Crate
Memphis in May offers a hands-on learning experience for Memphis students with its acclaimed World Cargo Crates. Each January through May, four wooden crates and their contents travel to numerous schools within the Memphis and Shelby County area. Think of the crates as a “children’s museum in a box,” offering unique items that offer insight into the culture of the honored country, such as maps, books, local crafts, sports items, musical instruments, clothing, and coins.
Teachers may sign up to receive one of the traveling crates for their school, and each school receives the crate for an entire week, during which time students can examine the items and learn about our 2017 honored country, Colombia. The crates come complete with a World Cargo Guide that provides descriptions of each item and its cultural significance.
Your reservation may be made for any week between January through May. The crate will be delivered to your school before noon on the Monday of your week, and picked up on the following Monday morning by 10:00 a.m., courtesy of Blue Sky Couriers.
Thanks for your interest in the World Cargo Crate, but all spots for 2017 have been filled. Feel free to look around and see what other ways you can educate your classroom on Colombia this year!
