Global Objects Collections

We have a wide range of Global Collections available for DECSY member schools to borrow, at a cost of £10 per 6-week period.

Each Collection contains a selection of authentic objects sourced from the country accompanied by a comprehensive Teacher’s Folder with background information and ready-to-use activities and lesson plans. The Collections also come with a British Bag - a selection of ten objects to represent Britain - and the Teacher's Folder includes ideas for how to use these to introduce ideas of identity and objects before you start looking at another country. 

If you would like staff training on using the Global Collections or for more information contact Helen Griffin.

For a flyer introducing the project and showing the updated Global Collections  click here.

If you have recently borrowed a Collection from us, we would be grateful if you would complete a short feedback form. This will help us with updating and improving the Collections. Thank you.
