Space Box from Freelearners CIC

A Community Resource library from freelearners

The Community Resource Library from Freelearners specialises in Resource Boxes like the Space Box shown here. The subjects of our boxes range from the basics like Maths and English to specific periods of History and the various branches of Science. Each Resource Box includes books, manipulables, art and building activities with many materials included, worksheets and equipment or tools where appropriate. Some of the boxes are age-specific, but many contain resources appropriate for children from ages 5 to 14 , so you can cover the topic with your entire family whilst tailoring the learning experience for each individual child.
