Realia Boxes

The MCJLE has a collection of 12 realia boxes available for teachers to borrow for up to one month. The boxes provide teachers with cultural artefacts and lifestyle based objects that can be handled by students to give them a concrete understanding of each item. Each box has a theme to suit the topic that teachers might cover – ‘home’, ‘school’, ‘food’, ‘clothing’ amongst them – and provide a welcome resource to teachers trying to bring authenticity to the classroom.

To order, complete the application form (rtf format | pdf format) and return by mail to MCJLE.
