A Through Z Boxes

A great resource for classroom use, our Check-Out Boxes can add a lot to your science curriculum. We have A-Z Boxes that focus on a specific animal. STEAM Kits include an experiment or a hands-on activity suitable for two to four students to engage at the same time. STEAM Boxes include books, animal artifacts, and topical information centered on a singular topic such as How Animals Eat. Investigation Stations and STEM Safari boxes are designed for one classroom at a time and supplement your curriculum around the Kansas State Standards for Science. The $15 deposit is refundable if all materials are returned on time and in good condition.
