Loans Boxes inspire creativity and support excellence and enjoyment across the curriculum. Each box contains original museum artefacts, supplementary material and cross-curricular links and activities.
Discover the amazing geology of Scarborough’s Dinosaur Coast with this stunning selection of rocks and fossils. Step back in time to an age when Scarborough was covered by tropical Jurassic seas and swamps, home to many fascinating marine creatures and dinosaurs.
Children will enjoy handling and playing with the objects in this box. It includes both real and replica toys, from Ancient Greece through to the Victorians and the present day. How do they differ from toys and games today?
Inside this box you’ll find replica artefacts (and a few originals) for children to handle. Using historical enquiry skills, investigate the objects and travel back in time to find out what it was like to live at Star Carr, a stone age site close to Scarborough.
Children will love this selection of objects and costumes unique to Scarborough’s seaside heritage, used as a starting point to explore seaside stories of both real Victorian people and places. Debate the importance of remembering a range of people and places from the locality and decide who or what should receive a commemorative blue plaque!
With a focus on role play and oral histories, this unique box contains replica and real artefacts, photographs and costumes. It assists students in making connections between WW1 and the town of Scarborough by focussing on the lives of real Scarborough residents and how they are affected.
The perfect supplement to our Rocks and Fossils box, this box includes 3D models of sculptures by artist Emma Gibson, samples of sand, microscope, hand lenses and teachers notes, including photos of Scarborough Beach, rock descriptions and ideas for art activities.
