Commonwealth Online has a fantastic series of loan boxes available for schools, colleges and community groups.  Each loan box contains up to 12 handling objects, a detailed information sheet on each object and tips on how to use the objects.

Using objects as a teaching resource is a great way to bring interactive and multi-sensory learning into your classroom.

If you would like to book a member of staff to deliver a session using the objects, then please click Outreach for more information.
