Out of a Box and Into the Curriculum

The Importance of Objects

A thing is just a thing until you give it meaning. 

How can we encourage our pupils to see the world that exist around an object, the secrets it's hiding and the questions it could answer? Join us for this hands on session which brings objects to life. Learn techniques that will allow your pupils to not only look at what is in front of them but really see what they are looking at. 

Using the Boxes of Delight loan artifacts you will discover how you can use objects and their stories to develop your curriculum planning.
