In partnership with Eisenhower International School in Tulsa, the Tulsa Global Alliance Culture Boxes are a great addition to any classroom or organization presentation. Each box contains cultural artifacts, books, musical instruments, fabrics, and other expressions of more than 40 unique countries, regions, and cultures. Eisenhower International School houses the boxes and coordinates the check-out program.
A great addition to any classroom presentation or educational setting, the TGA Culture Box Program is celebrating nearly 25 years of service to educators and community organizations!
Use the TGA Culture Boxes to:

The boxes can be checked out by any group or organization on a two-week basis.
Tulsa Public School classrooms may check out the boxes complimentary. All other users are charged a $15 fee per box to help with box maintenance.
The boxes promote critical thinking skills among students, and provide ample learning aids for visual, auditory, and tactile learners.
A typical box might include clothing, games, videos, books, toys, musical instruments, and other artifacts from around the globe, enabling students to immerse themselves in elements of other cultures.
Pre-K lessons and craft resources are also available.
Many boxes contain curriculum to aid in classroom presentations.
On average, more than 6,000 people annually participate in a culture box learning experience.
Organizations that typically check out culture boxes include libraries, schools, camps, and scout troops.
