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. We can ship books and DVDs, but not culture kits at this time. We currently offer culture kits from the following countries:
- Cambodia kit
- Indonesian kit
- Laos kit
- Malaysia and Singapore kit
- Pan SEAsia kit
- Philippines kit
- Thailand kit
- Vietnam kit
