Culture Kits

culture kits

Make your teaching about Southeast Asia tangible and real to your students. Check out a trunk full of fascinating objects, maps, outfits, cooking implements, picture books, music, posters, puppets and other cultural artifacts from a specific Southeast Asian country. You can set up your own classroom or school display or use the objects as hands-on props when teaching. We will work with you to select items, including books and videos/DVDs, most appropriate for your lesson plans or class project. Unfortunately, we are only able to ship books and DVDs but not culture kits, at this time.
