Tactile Theory’s curriculum resources are designed with the enthusiastic classroom practitioner in mind. Our resources are not comprehensive of any one unit or teaching area, but are designed to supplement already-existing programs across a range of STEAM subjects. You might also like to use these resources simply as a springboard to creating your own classroom strategies.
After all, you know the needs of your students best!
Our curriculum resources are a combination of sample activities and information sheets.
Feel free to use them in your classroom or subject department. We just ask that you spread the word about where you got them from and who Tactile Theory is.
