Join Us for Kansas Symbols!! What do Ornate Box Turtles, Little Bluestem, the Western Meadowlark and "Home on the Range" all have in common?  These are all some of the official state symbols of Kansas.  This trunk explores these well known symbols as well as some lesser known ones.  Did you know that Kansas has two state marches?  Or, which variety of sunflower is the real symbol of Kansas?  You will find the answers, and a lot more, as you use books, puppets, and a variety of activities to explore Kansas symbols. 

Trunk Talks are sponsored by the Scott County Historical Society in conjunction with the Kansas Historical Society. Special THANKS to the Western Kansas Community Foundation for their generous grant!
