Artifact Lending Kits
The Red Deer Museum + Art Gallery’s MAG Central is an engaging resource for object-based learning. Many everyday items from the past such as household objects, toys, military equipment, fur trade items, Indigenous tools, and photographs all highlight our regional history, tell personal stories or share insights into day-to-day life long ago.
Five key reasons real objects are ideal learning tools for students in your classroom…
We have developed 10 themes selected from our study collection that support specific topics in the Alberta Social Studies Curriculum, Grades 1-9. By bringing the museum to you, the MAG has created an outreach resource for schools and community organizations to enhance their programs, with ‘hands on history’.
