Discovery Kits

Discovery kits are available for two-week loan periods free of charge. The kits are designed to put primary documents and artefacts into the hands of students. Students are encouraged to examine, describe and analyze the artefacts as a way to investigate issues of discrimination, segregation, hiding, resistance, as well as the aftermath of war and immigration. Learning is supported by Student Information Cards and Teacher’s Guides. Pick-up and delivery or courier costs are the responsibility of the teacher.
