Tips for Finding Hands-On Materials

*To reduce the spread of COVID19 the LRC is unable to circulate materials at this time.  However, it's a good idea to learn how to locate these for the future!!*

In the LRC you can find a wide variety of hands-on materials that you can use to enhance your lessons. Learn how to locate these in the library search.

1) Go to and click Advanced Search.  

2)  Enter your search terms.  Limit to Catalog Only and Learning Resources Center.  

3)  Under the Formats limiter, click Show More.  Select limiters such as Non-Print Resources and Videos to find classroom materials.  



Get Hands-On

1) Make up a quick lesson plan idea.  Use the library search to find a book and at least one manipulative to use for the lesson.
