Teaching Collection

Teaching collection

Use object-based learning in your classroom to ignite creativity and further the appetite for knowledge in your students! This new interdisciplinary, K-12 curriculum-based loan program allows teachers to borrow themed cases with non-western, cultural objects. Motivate student learning with this exciting opportunity to study and investigate objects used by different cultures in different times. 
 
The Museum comes to you in a self-contained, easy to use case. Each case includes numerous artifacts, gloves, instructions, object information research, and lessons plans on the objects.  
 
Case #1: West African Creatures
Case #2: West African Masks
 
This program is free of charge and you can reserve one of these Teaching Collection Cases.  For questions and more information, please contact us.
