No time to come to us? Fear not, we can come right to your classroom!
We’ve hand-picked a collection of our most curious, fabulous and obscure objects. Students in your classroom can handle and engage with the objects to stimulate thinking and to share ideas with others.
Since the items in the case are rather obscure, students don’t have to worry about whether or not they are familiar with the objects. Instead they can share their ideas and guesses in a judgment-free environment.
This fun program ignites thoughtful inquiry, oral story sharing. group learning and often times, roars of laughter! Because after all, learning is fun!
What’s in a Curiosity Case?
